What Is the Difference between Transparent and Translucent?

Answer

The difference between transparent and translucent is that transparent means to let light pass through while translucent lets some light go in but not all of it. The transparent materials can be able to be seen through but the translucent materials will distort the image. Some examples of translucent materials are smoked glass, sheer cloth and thin plastic.
