Bi-concave mirror
Concave mirror
Convex mirror
Plane mirror
Concave and convex mirrors are curved
2.

Light travels at almost 300,000,000 meters per second in a vacuum
3.
Light can travel through .......
A luminous material
A mirror
A translucent material
An opaque material
Light can travel through translucent material
4.
We can see objects because .......
Our eyes give out light
They bend light into our eyes
They reflect light into our eyes
They shine light into our eyes
5.
Light travels in .......
Circular lines
Straight lines

In a ray diagram, a normal is a line drawn at .......
180° to the mirror's surface
45° to the mirror's surface
60° to the mirror's surface
90° to the mirror's surface
7.
Objects with a smooth surface give .......
Diffuse reflection
Irregular reflection
No reflection
Regular reflection
Rough surfaces give diffuse reflection

The moon
The sun
A luminous object gives out light
9.
Which of the following is translucent?
A mirror
Air
Greaseproof paper
