Wavelenght of violet and indigo is small than that of blue, Physics

The color of sky is blue but the wavelenght of violet and indigo is small than that of blue.Then why the color of sky is  blue?

Ans) The particles in the atmosphere are able to scatter lights of small wavelength...towards the blue part of the spectrum,

The size of the particles is not so small to scatter violet....their sizes are sufficient to scatter light at the middle last region of the spectrum, as a result the sky appears blue.
