ans (b) 90 cm
Focal length = +30 cm
The distance between the object and the mirror (u) = ?
The distance between the image and the mirror (v) = ?
Let the size of the object be equal to 1.
Given size of the image = 1/4 size of the object.

ho = 1

But we know that

u = -90 cm

The distance of the object from the mirror = 90 cm
