Solution

The correct option is D Chloroplasts
  • The chloroplast contains chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments which are responsible for trapping light energy essential for photosynthesis.
  • The chloroplast traps the radiant energy of sunlight and transforms it into the chemical energy of glucose formed from water and carbon dioxide.
  • The process is called photosynthesis.
    Thus, option C is the correct answer.
