Correct option is B)

During sunrise and sunset the sun rays have to pass through a larger distance and also a greater thickness of air since it is low in the sky. At these positions, the sky looks orange-red colour because photons of red and orange light are least scattered through the atmosphere and are able to reach our eyes.
