Does Clear Qualify as a Color?

Transparent or clear is not regarded as a colour. It has entirely different visual characteristics. Transparent matter allows light to travel through it without reflecting or emitting light, whereas physical objects’ colours rely on the light that is reflected, absorbed, or emitted by them. It is hence colourless.

A clear item takes on the hue of whatever is behind it when viewed from the viewer’s perspective. Glass, air, and water are a few examples of transparent materials. Semitransparent or translucent objects have their own hue since a sizable percentage of the light doesn’t pass through and is instead reflected.
