The colour quiz
The right colour can bring an outfit or a room to life and certain colours can even impact your mood. So, how exactly are humans able to see colours? Well, it’s quite simple. A person’s eyes actually team up to work with the brain to translate light into colours, according to Pantone. The way you perceive a purple grape or green leaves on a tree might be slightly different than someone else, but we can all distinguish purple from green and blue from orange – with the exception of those that are colourblind. Does that mean that we can all notice slightly different shades of the same colour? Well, take this colour quiz and find out!
Below are four different squares of a specific colour, and one of the squares is a slightly different shade – it might not even be noticeably different to some. Test your skills to see if you can spot the shade that is different from the rest in the 10 puzzles below.
Which shade of green is different?
Answer: The fourth square is a slightly lighter shade of green here. Were your eyes strong enough to see that?
Which shade of pink is different?
Answer: The shade of pink of the second square is slightly darker here.
