Question

The Sun appears to rise in the east and set in the west when viewed from Earth.


Correct Answer
A
True
Your Answer
B
False

Solution

The correct option is A True
The Sun is at the centre of our Solar system around which planets revolve.

The rotation of Earth about its own axis makes us to think that the Sun rises in the east and sets in the west.

The Earth rotates from West to East. So, when observed from the Earth, the Sun always appears to be rising on the eastern horizon and setting on the western horizon.
