The answer is the option (i) Ozone is not responsible for the greenhouse effect.

Explanation: The contribution of O_3 to the greenhouse effect is about 8 to 10%. About 75% of solar energy is absorbed by the surface of the earth, and the rest is radiated back to the atmosphere. This heat traps gases like CO_{2}, CH_{4}, O_{3}, CFCs \;and\; H_{2}O present in the atmosphere and adds to the heat of the atmosphere, causing global warming.
