Daylight hours in the summer time are noticeably longer than in the wintertime. Why?

My answer:

Since the direct sunlight hits the Northern Hemisphere and we are getting as much direct sunlight as possible, the days are longer.

Is this correct?

  • Science -

    the answer is;as the sun's axes revolves around the earth,the northen hemisphere gets colder causing the days to get shorter.
