d) There is a net radiation budget surplus at the equator and a net radiation budget deficit at the poles.

The solar energy input is higher (positive) at the equator, whereas the outgoing longwave radiation exceeds incoming shortwave radiation at the poles. These differences leat to the net budget surplus at the equator, and its deficiency at the poles.
