Dear student
 
Pls. post each query seperately.
 
A compund consists of several lenses operating together and is used to view things that are too small and cannot be viewed by naked eye. It gives a high magnification and resolution whereas telescope is used to view things that are too far away.
In a telescope the distance between the objective and eyepiece is greater than the sum of their focal lengths whereas in a microscope the distance between the objective and eyepiece is equal to the sum of their focal lengths.
 
The objective lens of a compund microscope has smaller focal length than the eyepiece.
The objective lens of a telescope has a larger focal length than the eyepiece.
 
We hope this clarifies your doubt.
