[A]. The rays of light coming from a distant object are parallel to one another when the reach the eye.
[B]. The rays of light coming from a nearby object are diverging when they reach the eye.
[C]. An eye can focus the image of the distant objects as well as the nearby objects on its retina by changing the focal length of its lens.
[D]. When the eye is looking at a distant object, the eye is said to be accommodate.

The human eye possesses the power of accommodation. This is the power to:

[A]. Alter the diameter of the pupil as the intensity of light changes
[B]. Distinguish between lights of different colours
[C]. Focus on objects at different distances
[D]. Decide which of the two objects is closer.

How does the eye change in order to focus on near or distant objects?

[A]. The lens moves in or out
[B]. The retina moves in or out
[C]. The lens becomes thicker or thinner
[D]. The pupil gets larger or smaller
What is the function of Iris?

Iris is a dark muscular diaphragm that controls the size of the pupil.

What is meant by accommodation of eye?

The ability of the eye lens to adjust its focal length is called accommodation.

Why do stars twinkle?

The twinkling of a star is due to atmospheric refraction of starlight. The starlight, on entering the earth’s atmosphere, undergoes refraction continuously before it reaches the earth.This makes continuously change in star’s position and we see the twinkling of stars.

Why does sky apear blue in colour?

The molecules of air and other fine particles in the atmosphere have size smaller than the wavelength of visible light. These are more effective in scattering light of shorter wavelengths at the blue end than light of longer wavelengths at the red end. When sunlight passes through the atmosphere, the fine particles in air scatter the blue colour (shorter wavelengths) more strongly than red. The scattered blue light enters our eyes and we see blue sky.
