Solution

If an object is placed midway between two parallel plane  mirrors facing each other, then the number of images that  will appear in mirrors is Infinite

Explanation:

If two plane mirrors are placed together on one of their  edges so as to form a right angle mirror system and  then the angle between them is decreased, some  interesting observations can be made. In fact as the  angle between the mirrors approaches 0 degrees (i.e.,  the mirrors are parallel to each other), the number of  images approaches infinity.
