Solution

## The correct option is D 60 cm from point B GIven: object distance u=−60 cm foacl length of the lens f=+20 cm Using the lens formula 1v−1u=1f 1v+160=+120 1v=120−160=130 ⇒v=+30 cm. This means image is formed on the right side of the lens between lens and the mirror as shown in the image below. For a concave mirror, an object placed at centre of curvature forms an image at centre of curvature. So, the final image is 60 cm from point B.
