Correct! Wrong!

The image of an object formed using the convex side of a steel spoon is erect and smaller in size.

#### Which of the following alphabets forms an image which looks the same as itself, when placed in front of a plane mirror?

Correct! Wrong!

The image of the English alphabet that looks that same as itself, when placed in front of a plane mirror, is 'A'.

#### Alphabets A, I, M, O, U, V, W form images that look same as them, when placed in front of a plane mirror.

Correct! Wrong!

Alphabets A, I, M, O, U, V, W form images that look same as them, when placed in front of a plane mirror.
