    B) Allow longer wavelength to enter earth atmosphere while doesn't allow shorter wavelength to leave the surface.

    C) Don't have wavelength specific character.

    D) Show wavelength specific behaviour near the earth while far from earth these have wavelength independent behaviour.

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    Radiation coming from sun or outer space have high energy or short wavelength, which are allowed to enter by green house gases. However, radiation emitted by earth is in infrared region, having long wavelength, are reflected back by the envelope of green house gases.
