    • D.

      By converting electrons to protons

    Correct Answer
    A. By converting photons to electrons
    Explanation
    Solar panels absorb solar energy by converting photons (particles of light) into electrons. When sunlight hits the solar panel, it excites the electrons in the panel's semiconductor material, causing them to be released from their atoms. These free electrons are then captured and channeled into an electric current, which can be used to power electrical devices or stored for later use. This process is known as the photovoltaic effect and is the fundamental principle behind the functioning of solar panels.
