Solution

 (i) A long-sighted person who has a near point of 50 cm from the eye cannot clearly see an object kept at a distance of 20 cm. She can see an object only if it is kept at her near point of 50 cm in front of the eye.
(ii) As the person is long-sighted, she cannot see nearby objects, but can see distant objects, clearly. Therefore, she can clearly see the object kept at infinity.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
