    Answer:

    The correct option is (b).

    Explanation:

    Given that,

    The height of the object, h = 15 cm

    Object distance, u = -44 cm

    Image distance, v = -14 cm

    We need to find the focal length of the lens. Using the lens formula.

    \dfrac{1}{f}=\dfrac{1}{v}-\dfrac{1}{u}\\\\\dfrac{1}{f}=\dfrac{1}{(-14)}-\dfrac{1}{(-44)}\\\\f=-20.53\ cm

    So, the focal length of the lens (-20.53 cm).
