C?

2.[Ex:A white light passes through a prims and comes out as a rainbow]How does the prism produce colors of the rainbow from white light?
A.by absorbing colorless wavelengths from white light

1C, 2B
The separation of while light colors by a prism is by refraction into different directions for each color.
