On a Sunday morning, Paheli’s friend visited her home. She wanted to see some flowering plants in the nearby garden. Both of them went to the garden. While returning from the garden they also observed some flowering plants on the roadside. But to their surprise, they found that the leaves and flowers of these roadside plants were comparatively very dull. Can you help them to know why?

The dull appearance of the leaves and flowers of the roadside plants may be due to the air quality present in the open area which includes dust particles emitted from the vehicles, chimneys and factories. These dust particles stick to the plant parts which made them appear dull.
