Why Do We See Different Colors?

Answer

The human color eye can see all the colors of a rainbow: red, yellow, green, blue, violet. We can also see black and white. The white light is all the colors together and black is no light at all. When we see the other colors what is basically happening is the object is absorbing all the colors except for the color we see. For instance, a blue object looks blue because it absorbs all the light except for the blue light. To us, it looks blue.
