Question

The early sunrise is due to atmospheric refraction.
  1. True
  2. False


Solution

The correct option is A True


At the time of sunrise or sunset, the sun is at the horizon i.e, Sun is near to the surface of Earth. Earth's atmosphere has varying density. This causes the light rays from the Sun to bend. Due to the bending of light, we are able to see the sun earlier than it has actually risen.
