Absorption of light by the exciton system of quantum molecular low-dimensional complexes (aggregates) is studied theoretically. It is shown that in the ground state rather small level of randomness of the impurities of H-aggregates to the chain of J-aggregates causes essential weakening of the intensity of the ab-sorption of the J-band (together with the onset of the H-band). Further growth of the level of randomness of the impurities does not yield any essential reconstruction of the absorption spectrum of the system. In the case of the total randomness the absorption is absent.
