B. I and II only

C. II and III only

D. I, II, and III only

E. I only

B

• Virtual

5. I and II are correct.

## KEY-POINTS…

• Large field of view simply means large coverage.
• Diminished image would give room for wider coverage.
• The nature of images formed by a convex mirror is the same irrespective of its focal length.
