Then which of following will be correct . (i) image is 5 cm long (ii) image is 10 cm long (iii) image is inverted (iv)image is erect

(a)both (i) and (iv)

(b)both (i) and (iii)

(c) both (ii) and (iii)

(d) both (ii) and (iv)

Focal length $F= -f$
and $u=-1.5\;f$
$\large\frac{1}{-1.5 \;f}+\frac{1}{v}=\frac{-1}{f}$
$\large\frac{1}{v}=\frac{1}{1.5 f}-\frac{1}{f}$
$\qquad= -\large\frac{-1}{3f}$
$v= -3 f$
Now $m =\large\frac{-v}{u}=\frac{-3 f}{1.5 \;f}$$=-2$
or $\large\frac{h_2}{h}$$=-2$
or $h_2=-2 h_1=-5 cm$
the image is 5 cm long.
The minus sign shows that it is inverted.
Hence c is the correct answer.
