The brightness-producing capacity of a source
A. Does not depend on its power
B. Does not depend on the wavelength emitted
C. Depends on its power
D. Depends on the wavelength emitted.
Our eyes detect brightness by the amount of photons actually reaching our retinas. Again, the number of photons depends upon the power of the source. So, brightness depends upon the power of the source.
Brightness depends upon how our eyes perceive light. Our eyes perceive yellow colour the most, so brightness depends upon the colour of the source. Now, colour is related to the wavelength of the source. So, brightness depends upon the wavelength as well.
