Solution

When the object is between the centre of curvature and the focus of a concave mirror

Here, Object AB is kept between C and F

First, we draw a ray parallel to principal axis
So, it passes through focus after reflection

We draw another ray which passes through Center of Curvature
So, the ray will go back along the same path after reflection

Where both reflected rays meet is point A'
And the image formed is A'B'
This image is formed between beyong Center(C)

We can say that

Image is in Front of the mirror (Real image)
Image is Inverted
Image is larger than the object (Magnified)

Concept: Concave Mirror
