Solution

The convex lens is a convergent type of a lens since it converges the light rays to a point while the concave lens is a divergent type of lens since it spreads the light rays.

A student did an experiment with a convex lens. He put an object at different distances 25 cm, 30 cm, 40 cm, 60 cm and 120 cm from the lens. In each case he measured the distance of the image from the lens. His results were 100 cm, 24 cm, 60 cm, 30 cm and 40 cm, respectively. Unfortunately his results are written in wrong order.  

Rewrite the image distances in the correct order.
