Explain why chloroplasts are found only in plant cells.

Answer:
Chloroplasts are found only in plant cells because they contain a green pigment called chlorophyll. This green pigment is important for photosynthesis in green plants. This chlorophyll pigment traps solar energy and utilises it to manufacture food for the plant.
