Solution :-

Blind spot Yellow spot
Blind spots are prominent at the origin of
the optic nerve - an area of the retina
containing a solitary yellow spot.
Yellow spot is a small area of the
retina located lateral to the blind
spot, at the posterior pole of the eye.
There is no shallow depression. The fovea centralis is a shallow
depression.
In this region, no photoreceptors are
present.
In this region, only cones exist.
Light has no effect on it. Bright light affects its sensitivity.
A photoreceptor cell is not present in this
region.
In this region, there are only cones.
A blind spot does not form an image. At the yellow spot, an image is
formed.
