d) All of the Above
e) None of the Above
Answer: b) Light reflection creates the color
The color of anything depends on the type of light sent to our eyes; light is necessary if we are to have any perception of color at all. An object is colored because of the light it reflects - all other colors are absorbed into that specific object. A light wave can be reflected, absorbed, or transmitted. This is determined by the object that the light wave hits, and that will give it its color. For an object to be black, it means that all the wavelengths of light hitting that object are absorbed; no light is reflected. Solid objects, for the most part, will reflect light, and transparent objects will transmit light through them. An apple appears red because it reflects red light.
