Help Please. Will give metal... @jim_thompson I can't seem to figure this one out Why can white light be separated into different colors? A. Particles of white light absorb the colors of different objects. B. Visible light contains seven different ranges of wavelengths. C. Matter absorbs and reflects white light differently. D. Prisms change the chemical composition of white light. My best guess would be B, but otherwise I don't know O~O. Tell me if I'm correct. If I'm not, tell me the correct one. Tell me why it is correct.

    Visible light contains seven different ranges of wavelengths. -yes Because each color is refracted differently, each bends at a different angle, resulting in a fanning out and separation of white light into the colors of the spectrum
