Image can be formed on screen if it is real .
Real image of reduced size can be formed by a concave mirror or a convex lens.
Let $ u= 2f+x$
then $ \large\frac{1}{u}+\frac{1}{v} =\frac{1}{f}$
=> $ \large\frac{1}{2f+x}+\frac{1}{v}=\frac{1}{f}$
=> $\large\frac{1}{v} =\frac{1}{f}-\frac{1}{2f (x)}=\frac{f+x}{f(2+x)}$
=> $ v= f \large\frac{(2f+x)}{f+x}$
It is given that $u+v=1 m$
$2f +x +f \large\frac{2+x)}{f+x}$$=(2f+x) \bigg[ 1+\large\frac{f}{f+m}\bigg] $$ < 1m$
or $\large\frac{f(2f+x)^2}{f+x}$$ < 1m\; or \; (2f+x)^2 < (f+x)^2 < (f+x)$
This will true only when $f < 0.25\;m$
Hence c is the correct answer.
