    A Concave mirror B Convex mirror C Plane mirror D Normal mirror Open in App Solution

    The correct option is C Convex mirror

    Convex mirrors are used in rear view mirrors of motor vehicles. This is because they give an erect, virtual, full size diminished image of distant objects with a wider field of view.

    The correct answer is Convex mirror

    Key Points

    Convex mirrors are used as rear view mirrors of vehicles because convex mirrors show larger images smaller.

    The image of any object is made straight and small by a convex mirror.

    Therefore, we can see a small and direct reflection of the rear vehicles using the convex mirror in motor vehicles.

    There are two types of spherical mirrors - convex mirrors and concave mirrors.

    Concave mirrors are called "Convergent mirror" and Convex mirror is called "Divergent mirror".

    The image of any object is made straight and small by a convex mirror.

    Therefore, using a convex mirror, we can see a small and direct reflection of the wide-area behind cars, motor vehicles in a convex mirror.

    A concave mirror is used to shave.

    The different types of Mirror used in cars are

    Convex mirror

    The side mirrors of the car and the rear view mirror of a car are made up of convex mirrors.

    This is because the image formed by a convex mirror is diminished and erect image, thus it provides a larger field of view.

    A larger field of view helps the driver to know better about the traffic behind.

    Concave mirror

    We use Concave mirror in the headlight of a car.

    When the bulb of the headlight is placed at the focus of the mirror,

    then the concave mirror produces a powerful beam of parallel light rays,

    This beam of light helps us to see things at a distance
