-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

We will not know for sure until official rules comes out. Odds are no, since there wasn't really a specific topic last year.

Probably not. The laser shoot should be a lot different though.

Ah, I see. Will learning optics from a typical high school textbook be enough? Or do I need more? If so, how much more?

I wouldn't count on having a high school textbook as my only resource. IDK how much optics-related material is in your textbook but it's always best to have multiple resources.

Has the Thick Lens Equation ever been tested on before?

It can't hurt to know it, but it's not something you should focus on.
