Answer:
  1. When the regions to the north of the equator receive direct sunlight, the days are long and the nights short. This is known as the summer solstices.
  2. On 21st June, the rays of the Sun fall directly over the Tropic of Cancer as the North Pole tilts towards the Sun. On this day, the Northern Hemisphere has the longest day and the shortest night. From June to November, it is summer solstices in the Northern Hemisphere.
