In order to not repeat same of similar part of sentence in Ukrainian we use em-dash to omit identical sentence or word combination constructions. So, translation may be not precise "word in word". And answer "Песимісти бачать темні кольори, песимісти - світлі" is also correct. (second part is changed: "бачать" substituted by em-dash and "кольори" in the end of sentence is omitted).
