    i dont think r.i is gonna affect the focal length as R=2f it is accepted and derived

    \[1/f=((\mu2\div \mu1)-1)(1\div R1-1\div R2)\] this is lens maker formula.. here \[\mu1\] is refractive index for air and\[\mu 2\] is the refractive index of the lens(medium).R1 is 10cm and R2 is the infinity(for plane). put this value in the above equation and find \[f\].

    @salini didi, I found this question in my study material, and "R = 2f" answer did not match the correct option. @Taufique bhaio, ur answer is absolutely correct. Thanks once again.
