Solution

## The correct option is B Assertion and reason both are correct and reason is not the correct explanation of assertionIn a convex mirror, when a real object is placed at some distance from it then, by ray diagram, we know that its virtual, erect and diminished image is formed. If a virtual object is placed at the focus of the convex mirror, then its real image will be formed at infinity because rays will seem to emerge from the focus. Thus, assertion and reason both are correct and reason is not the correct explanation of assertion.
