First surface $\mu_2=1.5, \mu_1=1, \mu=-\infty, \rho=+10\;cm$
$\therefore \large\frac{1.5}{v} -\frac{1}{-\infty}=\frac{1}{20} =\frac{1.5 -1}{10}$
or $\large\frac{1.5}{v}=\frac{1}{20} => $$v=30\;cm$
Second surface,
$\mu_2=-1,\mu_1=1.5, u=30.5=25\;cm$
$R= 5 \;cm$
$\therefore \large\frac{1}{v}-\frac{1.5}{2.5}=\frac{1-1.5}{5}$
or $\large\frac{1}{v}-\frac{3}{50}=\frac{-1}{10}$$=>v= -25\;cm$
Third surface,
$\mu_3=1.5,\mu_1=1, u=-25-10=-35\;cm$
$R=- 5 \;cm$
$\therefore \large\frac{1.5}{v}-\frac{1}{-35}=\frac{0.15-1}{-5}$
or $\large\frac{1.5}{v}+\frac{1}{35}=\frac{-1}{10}$$=>v= -\large\frac{35}{3}$
Fourth surface,
$u= -\large\frac{35}{3}-5 =\large\frac{-50}{3}$
$\mu_2=1,\mu_1=1.5, u= 9-4=5\;cm$
$R= -10\;cm$
$\therefore \large\frac{1}{v}+\frac{(1.5)3}{50}=\frac{1-1.5}{-10}$
The final position is $10+7.14=17.14\;cm$ (towards right)
Hence b is the correct answer
