(b) Draw ray diagrams for the following cases when a ray of light
(i) passing through centre of curvature of a concave mirror is incident on it.
(ii) parallel to principal axis is incident on convex mirror
(iii) is incident at the pole of a convex mirror
(iv) passing through focus of a concave mirror incident on it.

Q. Differentiate between a real and virtual image. Write any two points.

Q. A student focused the image of a candle flame on a white screen by placing the flame at various distances from a convex lens. He noted his observations :
