Magnification produced by a convex mirror is always: (1) Equal to 1 (2) Less than 1 (3) More than 1 (4) Zero

Answer: (2)

A convex mirror is a type of spherical mirror in which the reflecting surface is the bulged out portion of the sphere, i.e. in this type of mirrors the reflecting surface bulges out towards the incident light source. Because of their shape, the incident light is reflected outwards they are also called diverging mirrors and thus they are not used for focusing light. So the Magnification produced by the diverging mirror is always less than 1.
