1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

During an experiment using Soxhlet Method to extract cholesterol from egg yolk, also using dicloromethane as a reagent, we crush half boiled egg yolk and put 80 cm3 of dicloromethane.

2. Relevant equations

Then comes a question which is assuming the maximum of absorption of the reagent-cholestrol is 550 nm, sugest a way to quantify it.

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't understand what should I answer here

As worded it doesn't make much sense. Obviously it is about measuring concentrating using visible light spectrometer.
