Solution

The correct option is B 30cm
Given:
Focal length of lens,f=5cm
Distance between lens and screen = distance of image formed from the lens=v=6cm
We know, 1v1u=1f
161u=15
1615=1u
5630=1u
1u=130
Therefore, the distance of the object from the lens, u=30cm. Or, the object should be placed 30cm far from the lens on the opposite side of the wall.
