# The angle of a prism is $$A$$. One of its refracting surfaces is silvered. Light rays falling at an angle of incidence $$2{A}$$ 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. $$2\text{sin}A$$ 2. $$2\text{cos}A$$ 3. $$\frac{1}{2}\text{cos}A$$ 4. $$\text{tan}A$$

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 $$\dfrac{R}{2(\mu_1-\mu_2)}$$ 2 $$\dfrac{R}{(\mu_1-\mu_2)}$$ 3 $$\dfrac{2R}{(\mu_2-\mu_1)}$$ 4 $$\dfrac{R}{2(\mu_1+\mu_2)}$$

For a normal eye, the cornea of the eye provides a converging power of $$40~\text{D}$$ and the least converging power of the eye lens behind the cornea is $$20~\text{D}$$. Using this information, the distance between the retina and the cornea-eye lens can be estimated to be:
1. $$2.5~\text{cm}$$
2. $$1.67~\text{cm}$$
3. $$1.5~\text{cm}$$
4. $$5~\text{cm}$$

A ray of light is incident at an angle of incidence, $$i$$, on one face of a prism of angle $$A$$ (assumed to be small) and emerges normally from the opposite face. If the refractive index of the prism is $$\mu,$$ the angle of incidence $$i$$, is nearly equal to:
1. $$\mu A$$
2. $$\frac{\mu A}{2}$$
3. $$\frac{A}{\mu}$$
4. $$\frac{A}{2\mu}$$
