QUICK ANSWER…

C

DETAILS…

Magenta is wrong, I will explain…

There is a difference between the words ‘pigment’ and ‘white light’

There are three primary colours in terms of pigments, these are: red, blue, and yellow.

Colour combinations for pigments will yield:

Red + blue = purple

Blue + yellow = green

Yellow + red = orange

Similarly, there are three primary colours in terms of white light, these are red, blue, and green.

Colour combination for white light will be:

Red + blue = magenta

Blue + green = cyan

Green + red = yellow

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is incorrect.

  4. D is not the correct answer. this is for white light.
