Solution

## The correct option is C Real, inverted and magnifiedMagnification produced by the lens is given by: m=vu=−1.5 The numerical value of magnification is greater than 1 indicating that the image formed is bigger than the object, i.e., enlarged. The negative sign signifies that the image is inverted with respect to the object. A lens forms an inverted image, only if it is real. So, the image is real, enlarged and inverted.
