Solution

The correct option is B

Convex mirror


  1. In the case of a convex mirror, the reflecting surface is curved outwards and the inner surface is polished.
  2. A convex mirror is diverging in nature.
  3. Consider the ray diagram of a convex mirror shown below.

4. Any ray of light that passes through a convex mirror appears to meet at a point but does not converge in reality and hence a diminished image is formed.

5. The image is formed by the virtual intersection of light and is therefore always virtual.

6. The ray diagram of the convex mirror shown above clearly indicates that the image formed is virtual, upright and diminished.

Hence, option (B) is correct.
