Expert Answer:

As shown in figure the line passing through centre of curvature is normal to the spherical surface.
 
Hence Light ray passing through centre of curvature makes normal incidence on reflective surface of spherical mirror.
 
Hence light ray passing through centre of curvature is reflected along same path.
