Doubt : In the definition of Total internal reflection, you have written that "when a ray of light goes from rarer to denser medium"........ but i think it should be opposite "TIR occurs when ray goes from denser to rare medium."Please correct me if i am wrong. Thank you.

yes, TRI occurs when light travels from denser to rarer medium. I too had the same doubt but later I confirmed it from different sources.

Sir, is the image : (y+2)^2 = -(x+3). Using the fact that the line containing the image is perpendicular to the mirror and will have slope 1 we can consider some point on the image and putting that back in the equation of the parabola given to get the image.

Yes, correct. Very good.
let the equation of parabola is x=ay^2+by+C assume some point on given parabola find its image and pit it in the equation the find the value of a b c

I believe this won't be the correcr method. 3 variables.

assume x to be some variable and rewrite y in terms of it
(y+2)^2=-(x+3) Assume the points on parabola, then find the image After find image remove the parameter that we have assumed and the equation obtained will be our required image

Yes, correct. Very good.
Sir ,if the question was asked for a point at maximum distance instead of minimum distance then how shall we proceed?
(y+2) whole square = -(x+3
