Solution

(i) A ray of light passing through the optical centre of the concave lens will emerge without any deviation.

(ii) A ray of light parallel to the principal axis, after refraction from a concave lens, appears to diverge from the principal focus on the same side of the lens.

(iii) A ray of light directed towards the principal focus of a concave lens, becomes parallel to its principal axis after refraction through the lens.
