Question

A lens forms a sharp image on a screen. On inserting a parallel sided glass slab between the lens and the screen, it is found necessary to move the screen a distance d away from the lens is order to focus the image sharply. If the refractive index of glass relative to air is μ, the thickness of the glass slab is given by

Solution

Correct option is

 

When a glass plate of thickness t is introduced, the image shifts by an amount  Hence
