Question

Give scientific reasons: We cannot distinguish colours in moonlight.

Solution

Cone cells in the retina are responsibe for colour vision. They are functional only in bright light. Moon light is unable to stimulate the cone cells; however, the rod cells respond to dim light. Hence, we can see in moon light but cannot distinguish colours.
