penny appears to be:

  1. Closer than it really is
  2. The same as it really is
  3. Farther then it really is
  4. Closer, the same, or farther, depending on the angle at which it is
    viewed.

Refraction occurs at the interface between two transparent media
because:

  1. The mass density of the material changes
  2. The frequency of the light changes
  3. The speed of the light is different in the two media
  4. The direction of the light changes
  5. Some of the light is reflected
  6. None of the above
