What mechanism is primarily responsible for the removal of the interstellar material away from the type of region known as an "evaporating gas globule" (EGG) in an emission nebula?

    erosion of lower-density gas and dust caused by ultraviolet radiation from nearby bright stars
     chemical recombination with the components of the nearby molecular cloud due to reduction in the surrounding temperature
     condensation of material due to fragmentation in the parent molecular cloud
     formation of planets in dusty circumstellar disks surrounding the EGG
     hot protostellar winds from inside the EGG due to star formation within it
