How is a rainbow formed?

    How is a rainbow formed? Is it a series of droplets that refract the light to our eyes, or is it multiple droplets at different heights where each droplet gives just one color thats visible to us?

    Sounds like homework to me.
    It's both. Have you tried looking it up?

    How is one choice different from the other? May be you should explain the question a bit better. As written they seem both correct.
