Time from sunrise to sunset is lengthened by how many minutes?

Expert Answer:

We see the sun rising two minutes earlier than the actual rise and see it setting two minutes after the actual sunset. This happens due to atmospheric refraction. Hence, the total time by which the time from sunrise to sunset is lengthened, is 2 + 2 = 4 minutes.
