#### Question

A small bulb is placed at the focal point of a converging lens. When the bulb is switched on, the lens produces:

(a) a convergent beam of light
(b) a divergent beam of light
(c) a parallel beam of light
(d) a patch of coloured light

#### Solution

A parallel beam of light

The reason being, a beam of light coming from the focus of a converging lens becomes parallel, after refraction from the lens.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
