Solution

Four specific characteristics of the images of the objects formed by convex mirrors are as follows:-

(i) The images formed are virtual and erect.

(ii) The images formed are always diminished.

(iii) The images are formed behind the mirrors between the poles and foci of the mirrors when the objects are placed anywhere between the poles and infinity.

(iv) The images are formed behind the mirrors at the foci of the mirrors when the objects are placed at infinity.
