Correct option is A)

## Given: The focal length of a convex lens made of flint glass is 15cm. To remove its chromatic aberration, it is placed in contact with a concave lens made of crown glass. The ratio of dispersive powers of flint glass to crown glass is 1.5.To find the focal length of the concave lensSolution:Let focal length of the convex lens be and focal length of the concave lens be and ratio of dispersice power of the flint glass is $$\dfrac {\omega_2}{\omega_1}=1.5$$For achromatic combination, Hence the focal length of the concave lens is -10cm
