The angle of a prism is \(\text{A}.\) One of its refracting surfaces is silvered. Light rays falling at an angle of incidence \(2\text{A}\) on the first surface return back through the same path after suffering reflection at the silvered surface. The refractive index \(\mu,\) of the prism, is:
1. 2sinA

2. 2cosA

3. 12cosA

4. tanA

A plano-convex lens fits exactly into a plano-concave lens. Their plane surfaces are parallel to each other. If lenses are made of different materials of refractive indices \(\mu_1\) and \(\mu_2\) and \(R\) is the radius of curvature of the curved surface of the lenses, then the focal length of the combination is:
1. \(\frac{R}{2(\mu_1-\mu_2)}\)

2. \(\frac{R}{(\mu_1-\mu_2)}\)

3. \(\frac{2R}{(\mu_2-\mu_1)}\)

4. \(\frac{R}{2(\mu_1+\mu_2)}\)
