Consider the following statements:

  1. Ozone depletion is greater at higher latitudes than at lower latitudes
  2. The higher the Equivalent effective stratospheric chlorine (EESC), the higher is the stratospheric ozone depletion 

    Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Answer: [C] Both 1 & 2
