WHITE – because of its Value of 9.25 and Chroma of 0.18. How do we know? Because we have hue, value, chroma and LRV color notations that describe what colors look like. So, we can easily sort and categorize paint colors:

Whites

Chroma less than 0.55

Off-Whites

Chroma 0.55 to 1.15

Light Near Neutrals Value 8.12 up to 9.12 Chroma 0.1 to 1.00 *These colors are too dark to be considered White/Off-White
