Solution

## The correct option is D 30 cm in front of the mirrorThe ray diagram illustrates that, in case of a concave mirror, the image size becomes equal to the object size when the object distance equals the radius of curvature, i.e, twice the focal length.So, the object has to be placed at a distance of (15×2)=30 cm in front of the concave mirror.
