Riddle That [Season 4] Level 10

1. This one is rather tricky and hard to explain.
Anyway the answer is photon.
2. So enter "photon" in the text area and brag yourself for finishing Season 4 of Riddle That


  1. Do you know why the answer is photon? Usually, there is some connection between the answer and the way to solve the riddle - but I do not understand what this has to do with photons...

    1. Nevermind, I get it now."
      The eye is able to perceive colors that may be described by 3 parameters, R,G,B - the amount of red,green,blue photons per second. The frequencies that contribute to R,G,B don't have to be exact - there are bell curves around the maximal frequencies - but they're projected to some values of R,G,B. A particular ratio between R,G,B looks like grey/white color of different brightness that increases with R,G,B. – Luboš Motl Mar 28 '13 at 19:01"
