Solution

The correct option is A

True


Light reaching us from the horizon has to travel long distances through the atmosphere. During this long journey, colours of shorter wavelength (Example: Violet, Blue) would be fully lost due to scattering. The red light which undergoes less scattering decides the colour of the sun during sunrise and sunset.
