Consider the following properties of virtual  images:  

(A) cannot be projected on the screen  

(B) are formed by both concave and convex lens 

(C) are always erect  

(D) are always inverted  

 

The correct properties are:  

(a) (A) and (D) 

(b) (A) and (B)  

(c) (A), (B) and (C) 

(d) (A), (B) and (D)  

 

Answer

Let’s look at each options one by one

 

  • Real images are produced on a screen , virtual images are formed behind the screen.
    So, Option (A) is correct

  • For a convex lens , virtual image is formed when object is between O ptical center and F ocus.

    A concave lens always forms virtual images.
    So, Option (B) is correct

  • Virtual images are always erect .
    So, Option (C) is correct

  • But, virtual images are not inverted .
    But option (D) is incorrect  

 

Thus, (A), (B) and (C)  are correct

So, the correct answer is (c)
