(c): The amount of light reflected from a surface depends upon the smoothness of the surface.

Q.5. To form an image twice the size of the object, using a convex lens of focal length 20 cm, the object distance must be

(a) < 20
(b) > 20
(c) < 20 cm or between 20 cm and 40 cm
(d) cannot say


Q.6. The focal length of a lens is –0.4 m. The lens is

(a) convex (b) concave
(c) cylindrical (d) none of these


Q.7. Which of the following statements is true?

(a) A convex lens with power + 4 D has a focal length – 0.40 m.
(b) A convex lens with power – 4 D has a focal length + 0.25 m.
(c) A concave lens with power + 4 D has a focal length – 0.25 m.
(d) A concave lens with power – 4 D has a focal length – 0.25 m.

Answer 7

Q.8. If f is focal length of the lens, then the power of a lens is equal to

(a) 100 / f (cm)
(b) 10 / f (cm)
(c) 100 / f (m)
(d) 1 / 100 f (cm)

(a): Power of lens = 100 / f (cm)

Q.9. Select the incorrect statement stated below related to concave mirror.

(a) Outer surface is coated with opaque substance.
(b) Inner surface is polished and thus reflective.
(c) It is known as converging mirror.
(d) It is used to observe the phenomenon of refraction.

(d): Mirror is used to observe the phenomena of reflection.

Q.10. The focal length of four convex lens P, Q, R and S are 20 cm, 15 cm, 5 cm and 10 cm, respectively. The lens having the greatest power is

(a) P (b) Q
(c) R (d) S

(c): Power of a lens is inversely proportional to its focal length. Therefore, convex lens with the least focal length will have maximum power.
