From which phenomenon is the term ‘Greenhouse effect’ derived?
(a) That occurs in a boathouse
(b) That occurs in a greenhouse
(c) That occurs in a blue house
(d) That occurs in a house
I had been asked this question in unit test.
I’d like to ask this question from Environmental Issues topic in section Environmental Issues of Biology – Class 12
Correct option is (b) That occurs in a greenhouse
The explanation is: A greenhouse, also called a glasshouse is a building made of transparent material, in which plants such as flowers and vegetables requiring regulated climatic conditions are grown. The word greenhouse gives rise to the term ‘Greenhouse effect’.
