Optically denser object usually has a higher refractive index. A higher refractive index causes light to refract more and total internal refraction is easier to occur. Direct a light in to the diamond and the light is first refracted into the diamond, and then total internal refraction reflects the light back out and into our eyes.

I don't understand what your trying to say here.

Reflection: you look in the mirror.
Refraction: You put a straw in a glass of water, and it looks like it broke.
Absorption: If you have a black sweater and you wear it out in the cold, the black sweater is going to hold in heat better than a lighter sweater because the black sweater absorbs light .

No one is going to do all this

Reflection: looking in window reflection. Refraction: You put a straw in a glass of water, and it looks like it broke. Absorption: If you have a black sweater and you wear it out in the cold, the black sweater is going to hold in heat better than a lighter sweater because the black sweater absorbs light .

i tried

Reflection: Any surface that shows a mirror image. So this could include an actual mirror, glass, aluminum, etc.

Refraction: Any object that doesn't show a reflection. Refraction is where the object absorbs light, but emits some spectrum of light. For example, a green blade of grass absorbs nearly every visible part of the spectrum, but it emits green wavelengths of light that your eye detects.
