When an object is kept at any distance in front of a concave lens, the image formed is always:(a) virtual, erect and magnified (b) virtual, inverted and diminished(c) virtual, erect and diminished (d) virtual, erect and same size as object

(c) virtual, erect, and diminished


Diverging Lens or Concave Lens $-$ It is a lens that possesses at least one surface that curves inwards in the middle. In other words, it is thin across the middle and thick at the upper and lower edges, because of which the light that enters the lens, gets spread out, or diverges, which results in forming a smaller image. Due to this effect, it is also called a negative lens or a diverging lens.

The image formed by a concave lens is always virtual, erect, and diminished (smaller than the object) regardless of the object's distance.
