Explain why images formed by magnifying glasses are free from chromatic abberation.

All lens experience chromatic aberration. The chromatic aberration can be reduced by carefully designing a lens system to compensate for it. This is usually done by incorporating additional optical elements, but that would make for one very expensive magnifying glass. Chromatic aberration is caused by lens dispersion, with different colours of light travelling at different speeds while passing through a lens.
