Which statement describes how the absorption of solar energy by the Earth's surface changes during an ice age?

During an ice age, the Earth's surface is covered by a larger area of ice and snow. This increased ice and snow cover increases the Earth's albedo, or reflectivity, causing more solar energy to be reflected back into space rather than being absorbed by the surface. As a result, the absorption of solar energy by the Earth's surface decreases during an ice age.
