The slab of a refractive index material equal to 2 shown in the figure has a curved surface APB of a radius of curvature of 10 cm and a plane surface CD. On the left of APB is air and on the right of CD is water with refractive indices as given in the figure. An object O is placed at a distance of 15 cm from pole P as shown. The distance of the final image of O from P as viewed from the left is:

 1 20 cm 2 30 cm 3 40 cm 4 50 cm

A concave mirror of the focal length ${f}_{1}$ is placed at a distance of d from a convex lens of focal length ${f}_{2}$. A beam of light coming from infinity and falling on this convex lens-concave mirror combination returns to infinity. The distance d must be equal to:

1. ${f}_{1}+{f}_{2}$

2. $-{f}_{1}+{f}_{2}$

3. $2{f}_{1}+{f}_{2}$

4. $-2{f}_{1}+{f}_{2}$
