Solution 1

We prefer a convex mirror as a rear-view mirror in vehicles because it gives a wider field of view, which allows the driver to see most of the traffic behind him. Convex mirrors always form a virtual, erect, and diminished image of the objects placed in front of it.

A driver prefers to use a convex mirror as a rear-view mirror in his vehicle because this type of mirror has a wider field of view. Besides this, the convex mirror always forms virtual, erect and small sized images of the large number of objects at the same time.
