Solution :

The ozone layer is mainly found in the lower portion of the Stratosphere. Stratosphere is the second layer in our atmosphere. Ozone layer protects our earth from harmful ultra violet rays of Sun.
The serial of layers in the atmosphere is as:
1. Troposphere:  It extends to a height of18 km at the equator and 8 km at the poles. Since most of the water vapour form clouds in this layer, all weather changes occur in the troposphere(“tropo” means “change”).
2. Stratosphere: It extends from the tropopause to about 50 km. This layer is free from clouds and associated weather phenomena. Hence, it provides ideal flying conditions for large jet planes.
3. Mesosphere: The mesosphere extends to a height of 80 km.
4. Thermosphere: This layer extends to a height of about 640 km. This layer also helps in long distance communication. The thermosphere also protects us from meteors and obsolete satellite because of its high Temperature.
5. Exosphere: The exosphere extends beyond the thermosphere up to 960km.
