Step by Step Solution

Step1: definition of lens

A lens is a transmissive optical device that uses refraction to focus or disperse light beams. A simple lens is constructed from a single piece of transparent material, whereas compound lenses are constructed from several simple lenses arranged along a common axis.

As a result, less light will pass through, making the image darker. In any case, the entire image will be formed.
