  3. 10 cm
  4. 22 cm
  1. A ray of light that strikes a plane mirror PQ at an angle of incidence of 30o, is reflected from the plane mirror and then strikes a second plane mirror QR placed at right angles to the first mirror. The angle of reflection at the second mirror is:
  1. 30o
  2. 45o
  3. 60o
  4. 90o


  1. An object is placed at 100 mm in front of a concave mirror which produces an upright image (erect image). The radius of curvature of the mirror is:
  1. Less than 100 mm
  2. Between 100 mm and 200 mm
  3. Exactly 200 mm
