To obtain a magnification of, –0.5 with a convex lens, the object should be placed:
(a) at F
(b) between optical centre and F
(c) between F and 2F
(d) beyond 2F
Beyond 2F: since the magnification is negative and less than 1, the image formed is real, inverted and diminished. Therefore, the object should be placed beyond 2F.
