Solution

## Step 1: Given that:Object distance(u) = −30cm Focal length(f) of convex lens= +10cm (Note; The object distance is taken as negative as it lies in the left to the optical centre of the lens.The focal length of the convex lens is positive as the focus of the convex lens lies in the right of optical centre.)Step 2: Calculation of image distance:Using lens formula; 1v−1u=1f Where u = Object distance v= Image distance f = Focal length of the lensPutting all the values we get;1v−1−30cm=1+10cm1v+130=1101v=110−1301v=3−1301v=230v=+15cmThus, Option c) +15cm is the correct option.
