    After a shower of rain, a rainbow is seen:

    A)  Anywhere irrespective of the position of the sun

    B)  Opposite of the sun

    C)  Towards the sun

    D)  Even in the absence of the sun

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] In theory, every rainbow is a circle, but from the ground, only its upper half can be seen. Since the rainbow's centre is diametrically opposite to the sun's position in the sky, more of the circle comes into view as the sun approaches the horizon, meaning that the largest section of the circle normally seen is about 50% during sunset or sunrise.
