Solution

## The correct options are B The beam diameter of the incident and reflected beams must be the same C d=f1−2|f2|Since the beam of light retraces the path, the beam diameter of incident and reflected beams must be same.Also to retrace the path, the light refracted from the converging lens must fall on the center of curvature of the convex mirror.Thus f1=d+2|f2|⟹d=f1−2|f2|
