  6. (a) luminous bodies (b) smooth (c) beam (d) Convex (e) colours.
  7. Raindrops sometimes act like tiny prisms. They can also scatter sunlight passing through them into various colours. The combined effect of thousands of raindrops located at the same angle makes a complete rainbow.
  8. When white rays of light passes through a prism, it splits into seven colours. The band of seven colours obtained by splitting of white light is called spectrum.The seven colours are commonly known as VIBGYOR which stands for violet , indigo,blue,green,yellow,orange and red.
  9. The two laws of reflection are :-
    1. The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection.
    2. The incident ray, the reflected ray and the normal at the point of incidence all lie in the same plane.
  10. Real imageVirtual image
    1. A real image can be obtained on screen.1. A virtual image can not be obtained on screen.
    2. It is formed in front of the mirror.2. It is formed behind the mirror.
    3. The reflected rays actually meet after reflection.3. The reflected rays do not meet but appear to come from a point.
