Green plants have a substance in them called chlorophyll which enable them to trap rays of sunlight and then used in the reaction of sunlight +water+carbon dioxide=food+oxygen+glucose
Chlorophyll is the pigment which makes a plant look green. It is kept inside the chloroplasts of a plant cell. When sunlight shines on the chlorophylll molecule, the energy is absorbed. The molecule then releases the energy. The energy makes carbon dioxide combine with water with the help of enzymes in the chloroplast
