Torch position A will create a shadow (a) and torch position B will form the football\'s shadow (b). Here, the difference in the size of the ball\'s shadow (A) and (B) is due to the difference in the position of the torch from the ball at A and B.
The shadow (A) has a larger size than the ball shadow (B) simply because the screen, flashlight position A and the ball are in the same straight line.
