Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Light from the sun is white. White light is composed of all seven colors (VIBGYOR), which are visible humans. As this light passes through the atmosphere around the Earth, the short wavelengths of light that correspond to the colors violet and indigo are filtered out, and their wavelengths spread across the sky.

At the time of  sunrise and sunset, when the sun is close to the local horizon, light must pass through more air before reaching the observer. This spreads light out more than usual, leaving the longer wavelengths of yellow, orange and red to be seen.

scattering of light  due to particles of air also causes various changes in the color of the sky ............
