Answer Key:

  1. C

Explanation: The property of the eye to adjust the focal length of eye lens is called accommodation.

  1. D

Explanation: The human eye forms the image of an object at its retina.

  1. C

Explanation: The least distance of distinct vision for a young adult with normal vision is 25 cm.

  1. D

Explanation: The action of ciliary muscles holding the eye lens changes the focal length of eye lens enabling the eye to focus the image of objects at varying distances.

  1. C
  2. C

Explanation: Change in the size of the pupil by the iris takes some time.

  1. A

Explanation: In bright sunlight, pupil of the eye contracts so as to allow only a little light to enter the eye.

  1. B
  2. A
