Correct Answer - Option 1 : At C

The correct answer is At C.

  • A concave mirror is a type of spherical mirror in which, the reflecting surface is the inner curved surface of the sphere.
    • The incident light is reflected inwards because of its shape. Thus, such mirrors are also called converging mirrors.
  • A concave mirror forms different images which depend on the distance between the object and the mirror.
  • In a concave mirror, the object should be placed at C (center of curvature) to obtain a real, inverted image of the same size at C. In this case, the image dimensions are equal to the dimensions of the object.
