After I did some research, I found out that my below post is completely wrong!!! After reading a chapter in our science text book, I realized that my below theory is incorrect. This is what I learned.

White light is made up of all of the colors of the rainbow, right? And everything reflects or absorbs those colors. When it reflects a certain color and its shade, it's the color we see. When it absorbs it, we don't see that color. So, for example, a strawberry is red for what reason? Because it absorbs all of the colors, but red, which it reflects.

So, this is what I learned after some research about the
