Assertion and reason are correct, but the reason is not the explanation for the assertion.

CF_{2}Cl_{2}\overset{UV}{\rightarrow}Cl^{o}(g)+Cf_{2}Cl^{o}(g)

Cl^{o}(g)+O_{3}\rightarrow ClO^{o}(g)+O_{2}

ClO^{o}(g)+O(g)\rightarrow Cl^{o}(g)+O_{2}

Due to depletion of ozone layer more UV radiation filters into troposphere.
