Expert Answer

  • Chloroplast, chromoplast, and leucoplast, all three are types of plastids.
  • Leucoplast is a colourless plastid, involved in storage of starch lipid and proteins. Being colourless, leucoplasts are devoid of any pigments.
  • Chromoplasts are plastids responsible for pigment synthesis. They give distinctive colours to different fruits, flowers and ageing leaves in plants. 
  • Chloroplast are green coloured plastids containing thylakoids and photosynthetic pigment chlorophyll. Chloroplast are involved in photosynthetic production of carbohydrates.
