A prism splits a beam of white light into its seven constituent colours. This is so because A. phase of different colour is different B. amplitude of different colours is different C. energy of different colours is different D. velocity of different colours is different

A prism splits a beam of white light into its constituent colours.
because when white light pass through prism they travel different path due to change in their wavelength due to medium refractive index.
the change in wavelength alters the velocity of different colours and they deviates according to their wavelength.
