Correct Answer: Option C
Explanation
The image of an object placed in front of a plane mirror is always as far behind the mirror as the object is in front of the mirror. Thus when the object is 4m in front of the mirror, the image will be 4m behind the mirror. But when the mirror is moved in towards the man, (that is the man is now 3m from the mirror), the image distance will again decrease by 1m from behind the mirror. Thus the new image position is 3m behind the mirror. Therefore, the distance between the man and his new image is 6m.
