Solution

The correct option is C Both A and C
Plastids are present in plant cells, which synthesise and store important chemical compounds used by the cell. There are many types of plastids as a chloroplast, chromoplast and leucoplasts. Leucoplasts are colourless plastids and mainly help in storage of food compounds like starch, proteins or fats. Chromoplasts are coloured plastids, e.g., chloroplasts. The chloroplast is green coloured and is one the important type of plastid, which carries out photosynthesis and produces food. Differently, coloured chromoplast makes the plants attractive for insects, which are involved in pollination. Thus, the correct answer is option D.
