Expert Answer:

Since the person is not able to see farther than 2 cm, he is suffering from myopia. Hence, a concave lens of suitable power is required to correct his defect. The focal length of the lens is given by his far point i.e.,

Focal length =  Far point

2 cm

? Power of the lens = -(1/f) = -100/2 = -50 D

Hence, a concave lens of power 50 D is required to correct the given defect of vision.
