A beam of light from a source L is incident normally on a plane mirror fixed at a certain distance x from the source. The beam is reflected back as a spot on a scale placed just above the source L. When the mirror is rotated through a small angle $\theta$, the spoy of light is found to move through a distance y on the scale. The angle $\theta$ is given by

(a) $\frac{y}{2x}$

(b) $\frac{y}{x}$

(c) $\frac{x}{2y}$

(d) $\frac{x}{y}$
