I Direct polar radiation increases as...

Summary
Direct and Diffuse radiations with zenith angle
Does direct radiation increase as the zenith increases? I know the diffuse radiation increases as zenith does, but is it the same for direct
Also is it right to say that when diffuse radiation increase, the direct should decrease and vice versa?

edit: My book says diffuse increases as we move towards the Dusk. But does it also increase as we move towards Dawn?

Ha. I was adding to your question. Not asking you. I should have added some appropriate punctuation, perhaps.
The whole question needs an answer or perhaps a reference.
