Solution 1

Range of the distance of the object = 0 to 15 cm from the pole of the mirror.
Nature of the image = virtual, erect and larger than the object.

 

Solution 2

Range of object distance = 0 cm to15 cm
A concave mirror gives an erect image when an object is placed between its pole (P) and the principal focus (F).
Hence, to obtain an erect image of an object from a concave mirror of focal length 15 cm, the object must be placed anywhere between the pole and the focus. The image formed will be virtual, erect, and magnified in nature, as shown in the given figure.
