Image Formation by Spherical Mirrors

Suppose we wish to obtain different sizes of images. and now for example we need to get one erect image, where do we have to keep the object and where will we get the image exactly? Different images can be obtained for the different position of objects of a concave mirror and this can be clearly seen in the following table.

The Location, Size and Nature of the Image by Concave Mirror for Various Positions of the Object
Position of the Object Position of the Image Size of the Image Nature of the Image
Between P and F Behind the mirror Magnified Virtual, erect
At F At infinity Highly magnified Virtual, erect
Between F and C Beyond C Magnified Real, inverted
At C At C Same size Real, inverted
Beyond C Between F and C Diminished
