The colour of the ocean seems to be blue as the sunlight falling on it is



[ A ]    reflected
[ B ]    refracted
[ C ]    diffracted
[ D ]    scattered right
Answer : Option D
Explanation :
The reason the ocean is blue is due to the absorption & scattering of light. The blue wavelengths of light are scattered, similar to the scattering of blue light in the sky but absorption is a much larger factor than scattering for the clear ocean water. In water, absorption is strong in the red & weak in the blue, so red light is absorbed quickly in the ocean leaving blue. The red, yellow, & green wavelengths of sunlight are absorbed by water molecules in the ocean.
