Solution

The correct option is A 6 cm


Using mirror formula for first reflection by the concave mirror,
v=ufuf=(15)(10)15+10
=1505=30 cm
This image will behave as the object for the convex mirror

For the reflection at the convex mirror,
u=10 cm and f=15 cm
(considering the direction in which rays are travelling to be positive)
v=ufuf=(10)(15)1015=6 cm
