Hi SAINATHAN! Welcome to PF! :wink:

We don't have to …

If the rest of teh screen wasn't opaque, but was see-thru, you would really no longer have two slits but just ahve a sheet of transparent material with two slits in it. This would result in the fringes and light spots being obscured by all the other light getting through,
