Why do we prefer a convex mirror as a rear-view mirror in vehicles?
We prefer a convex mirror as a rear-view mirror in vehicles because of the following reasons:
(i) A convex mirror always produces an erect image of the objects.
(ii) Also, the image formed is diminished due to which the convex mirror gives a wider view. Therefore, rear-view mirrors are made of convex mirrors.

Mr. Raghav, grade 6 teacher find that his students do not draw when he draws on the board. Every time he had to turn towards them to see whether they draw and label the diagrams. Arav, one of his student fixed two big convex mirrors at the two sides of the black board. With this Mr. Raghav was able to draw and also supervise his students through the mirror. All the students started doing their work property.
