    If light is transmitted at a point of contact in Newton's rings. The central spot will be darker or brighter?

    If you understand how Newtons rings are formed, what do you think and why?

    Actually I can't understand what the word "transmission at contact point" here means. I know that there is thin layer of air at contact point due to which there is phase shift of 180° which results in dark point at mid.
