Standing in front of which of the following types of mirrors will a person find that his image is larger than himself?

Options :
  1. Plane
  2. Concave
  3. Convex
  4. Plano-convex
Answer and Explanation :-

Answer: Option 2


A concave mirror curves or bends inwards and makes an object look bigger and nearer than it actually is. It works by making light rays seem to come from a point in front of the mirror, which is closer to our eyes. Therefore if a person stands in front of a concave mirror then he will definitely find that his image is larger than himself. Concave mirrors are important in such things as bicycle reflectors and reflecting telescopes.

You do not have to sit outside in the dark. If, however, you want to look at the stars, you will find that darkness is necessary. But the stars neither require nor demand it.
