Solution

## The correct option is A Concave & placed towards right of IIn the given diagram, it can be clearly noted that the image formed after reflection from the mirror is real and inverted. Only a concave mirror can produce real and inverted images, so the mirror is a concave mirror.Now to find the position of the mirror, let us assume that the mirror is placed between the object and image. The image formed on the right side of a concave mirror can never be real. So the mirror is places towards the right side of the image to obtain a real image.The mirror will be concave and placed towards right of I
