Solution

The correct option is A

Real, inverted and magnified

Magnification produced by the lens is given by, m = vu = -1.5.

The negative sign signifies that the image is inverted with respect to the object and thereby, it is also real. The numerical value of magnification is greater than 1 indicating that the image formed is bigger than the object, i.e., enlarged.
