Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : 3 × 108 m / s 

The correct answer is 3 × 108 m / s.

  • Light
    • Light is a form of energy that makes us see.
    • An object reflects the light that falls on it.
    • This reflected light when received by our eyes enables us to see the object.
    • The speed of light in a vacuum or the air is 3 x 108 m / s and it is different in different media.
    • Light travels in a straight line.
    • The speed and wavelength of light change when it travels from one medium to another but frequency remain unchanged.
