Solution

## The correct option is C 100 cmHere, μ2=1.5,μ1=1,R=20cmu=−100cm,v=?As light goes from air (rarer medium) to glass (denser medium), therefore,−μ1u+μ2v=μ2−μ1R−1100+1.5v=1.5−120=14032v=140−1100=5−2200=3200=100cm∴ The image is formed at a distance of 100cm from the glass surface, in the direction of incident light.
