. A student has obtained an image of a well-illuminated distant object on a screen to. Determine the focal length


 F1 of the given spherical mirror. The teacher then gave him another mirror of focal length,F2 and asked him to obtain a focussed image of the same object on the same screen. The student found that in order to focus the same object using the second mirror, he has to move the mirror away from the screen. From this observation it may be concluded that both the spherical mirrors given to the student were (select the correct option)
