Solution

  1. Accessory pigments are light-absorbing molecules which are found in photosynthetic organisms.
  2. They transfer the absorbed light to chlorophyll-a and thus increasing the photosynthetic rate.
  3. In absence of accessory pigments, less amount of light will be absorbed and also there would be no protection provided to chlorophyll molecule from photo-oxidation.
