Why are clouds white?

Clouds are white because the water droplets reflect the sunlight shining from above.

Light is made up of the different colors of the rainbow and when all the colors come together equally, your eyes see the color white.

For example, the sun appears as a yellow color because it sends out more yellow light than any other color.

Clouds reflect all the colors of the rainbow at the same rate, so they look white.
