D

Solution

The correct option is B Absorption of light and photochemical decomposition of water
Chlorophyll is the green coloured pigment mainly arranged in and around pigment protein complexes called photosystems which are embedded in the thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts and serve as a light trapper and absorb light that helps in the photolysis of water that provides electrons and protons.
So the correct option is 'Absorption of light and photochemical decomposition of water'.
