A man holds a rectangular card in front of and parallel to a plane mirror. In order for him to see the entire image of the card, the least mirror area needed is: A. that of the whole mirror, regardless of its size B. that of the pupil of his eye C. one-half that of the card D. one-fourth that of the card E. an amount which decreases with his distance from the mirror ans: D 10. A light bulb burns in front of the center of a 40-cm wide plane mirror that is hung vertically on a wall.
