Direction In each of the following questions, a statement of Assertion is given by the corresponding statement of Reason. Of the statements, mark the correct answer as

(a) If both Assertion and Reason are true and Reason is the correct explanation of Assertion.

(b) If both Assertion and Reason are true, but Reason is not the correct explanation of Assertion.

(c) If Assertion is true, but Reason is false.

(d) If Assertion is false, but Reason is true.

(e) If Assertion and Reason both are false.

Q25. Assertion: Convex mirror is preferred for rearview mirror in vehicles.

            Reason: The field view of a convex mirror is lesser than that of concave mirror.

Q26. Assertion: An object appears to be black.

            Reason: All the light falling on the object is absorbed and only black light is reflected from it.

Q27. Assertion: Lateral displacement is the distance between incident ray and the emergent ray.

            Reason: The wider the glass slab, the larger the lateral displacement.

Q28. Assertion: In the dispersion of white light by a prism, the red light bends the least.

            Reason: The frequency of red light is the highest.

Q29. Assertion: The object distance is the distance of the object from the lens.

            Reason: It is measured from the object to the optical centre of the Lens.

(b) √5/2

(c) 2/√5


Q31.  When an object is placed on the principal axis of a convex lens between first focus and optical centre, then position of image will be

(a) on same side of the lens as the object between first focus and optical centre

(b) on same side of the lens as the object and away from the first focus

(c) on opposite side of the lens as the object between second focus and optical centre

(d) on opposite side of the lens as the object and away from the second focus
