Your Answer
C

Your Answer
D

Solution

The correct option is C chloroplast
Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in the chloroplast of plants. Chlorophyll absorbs light in the blue-red region and reflects the green light, hence giving green color to the leaves. It plays a major role in light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis and is the major absorber of incident light used for photosynthesis. 

Chromoplasts are different colored plastids that store different-colored pigments. They are present in some photosynthetic eukaryotes. 

Ribosomes are protein-synthesizing machinery of a cell. It consists of two subunits, a smaller subunit, and a larger subunit. Structurally they consist of RNA and a specific protein to synthesize proteins required by the cell. 

Lysosomes are membrane-bound organelles present inside a cell and are involved in cell membrane repair, digestion of molecules like carbohydrate, fat, etc. and fighting against foreign microorganisms.
