Q2: Why are clouds white?
A2: Due to Mie scattering - since clouds contain many different sized particles they will scatter many wavelengths which are of the same size order as the particles. Many wavelengths in the visible spectrum is seen as white.

A1: Rayleigh scattering of blue light for which the wavelength is much smaller in size relative to the particles that are in the sky.
