Cryptography question


Scenario:

1. Alice has encrypted the text "red" with her private key, and stores the ciphertext on a public ledger.
2. Her public key is known.
3. Bob knows that Alice has stored a ciphertext corresponding with either "red" or "white" on the ledger.

Question:

Using the public key, the ciphertext, and the possible cleartext values, is it possible to determine the value which has been stored?
