Solution

The correct options are
B

30 cm in front of the mirror


Since parallel beams are converging at 15 cm distance, so focal length of the mirror is 15 cm.

As we know that the object kept at the centre of curvature will produce an image of the same size as that of the object.

Radius of curvature is twice the focal length so the object should be kept at a distance of 30 cm from the pole of the mirror.
