    It shows that a plant photosynthesises best with a very short wavelength of visible light or a very long wavelength (blue and red) but it doesn't photosynthesis that well with mid range wavelengths (green).

    You should the quote some figures from the graph and if you need to, give reasons for why this is: chloroplasts absorb blue and red wavelengths the best and reflect green wavelengths (that's why a leaf looks green).

    Hope this helped
