    Answer: B

    White paper reflects some of the incoming waves,

    while black absorbs all of the incoming waves.

    Explanation:

    Light is reflected off of white surfaces. Light is absorbed by opaque materials and transmitted through transparent objects.

    In the case of a white paper, a white paper can be considered as a translucent material in which some of the light incident on it bounces off while some pass through it. Therefore, we can conclude that White paper reflects some of the incoming waves,

    while black absorbs all of the incoming waves.
