I1 is the image of O formed by mirror M1
I1 acts as object for mirror M2 and gives an image I1/ .
For the mirror M1, I1 is the first image and it is at a distance of 2b from O. I12 is the second image and it is at a
distance 4b from O. Likewise the third image is at a distance = 2 3b = 6b. Generalizing this we see that the

2IIT1516MT8PCMS

Ans (B)
When a ray of light passes through a glass slab with parallel faces, it does not suffer any deviation ; it is
only displaced parallel to itself. Therefore, the direction of the beam remains unchanged after passing
through the glass slab. However, the rays are displaced slightly towards the outer side. Hence the
divergence angle of the emergent beam will be the same as that of the incident beam.

the figure. The refractive indices of the material of the prism for the above red, green and blue
wavelengths are 1.39, 1.44 and 1.47 respectively. The prism will

That is, for an angle of incidence 45, that color will suffer total internal

reflection for which the refractive index is less than 1.414
Therefore, red light will be total Internally reflected at interface AB,
B
whereas blue and green light will be refracted.

Ans (C)
Since there will be no refraction from P to Q and then from Q to R (all being identical), the ray will now
have the same deviation as before the point N.

. Let X be a 2 2 matrix such that X A X B
0 1
2 0
Statement I: X is non-singular and det.(X) = 2
Statement II: X is a singular matrix.
Ans (C)
If X = 0, then XAX = 0 B = 0, a contradiction
X 0, let | X | = a | X | = a
Also, | X A X | = | B | (a) (1) (a) = 4 a2 = 4 a = 2
As a = | X | 0, X cannot be a singular matrix.

29. Statement I: If a and c are non-collinear, then the lines r 6a c (2c a) and r a c (a 3c)

are coplanar.

Statement II: There exist and so that the two values of r become same.
Ans (A)
If the lines have a common point, then and such that
6 = 1 + and 1 + 2 = 1 + 3
= 3, = 2
30. Statement I: The point A (3, 1, 6) is the mirror image of B (1, 3, 4) in the plane x y + z = 5
Statement II: The plane x y + z = 5 bisects the line joining A(3, 1, 6) and B(1, 3, 4).
Ans (B)
Direction ratios of AB are 2, 2, 2 or 1, 1, 1
AB is normal to x y + z = 6
Also, midpoint of AB = (2, 2, 5) lies on x y + z = 5
The plane bisects AB statement 2 is true.
As the plane is the perpendicular bisector of the segment AB,
A is the mirror image of B and statement I is also true but doesnot follow from statement II alone
