Solution

## The correct option is B 30 cm Given: The original object is kept at the center of curvature of concave mirror. Focal length of concave mirror taking the right side as positive and left as negative: f=−20 cm Distance between the plane mirror and concave mirror, d=50 cm For plane mirror, image distance equals the object distance. Hence, distance of the image of plane mirror from the pole of the concave mirror is 50+10=60 cm This image acts as object for concave mirror. So, object distance for concave mirror: u=−60 cm Let the image distance be v Applying mirror formula 1v+1u=1f 1v+1−60=1−20 v=−30 Thus the final image is formed at a distance of 30 cm to the left when measured from the pole of the concave mirror.
