The correct answer is that the light energy travels through the water until it is reflected or absorbed.


The law of conservation of energy is illustrated as the form of energy that cannot be destroyed or produced, however, it gets transformed from one form to another. In case of Deep Ocean lantern fish that generates light in water, which travels along certain distance and then moves back, that is, in the reverse direction. This happens as the light travels in waves and when it comes in contact with the waves, it either gets absorbed or is reflected back.
