d. absorb green and red light and reflect yellow and blue light.
There are three types of pigments in chloroplasts. These are chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, and carotenoids. Their aborption spectra vary from one another. It should be noted that the color of a material basically corresponds to the spectrum of light that is not absorbed by the material.
