Question:

Why does the human eye perceive a red colored dress as the color red?

A The molecules of the dress do not absorb red light wavelengths.
explanation

When light hits an object, the object absorbs some of the light and reflects the rest of it. The wavelengths that are reflected determine how our eye perceives the color. We see a red dress as “red” because those wavelengths are reflected and not absorbed.
