Explanation:

a )

focal length of convex spherical mirror

f = 36/2  cm = 18 cm

object distance u = – 25 cm

mirror formula   v = 6.28  cm .

It is positive hence the image will be erect / upright  and formed on the back of the mirror.

For object distance of 47 cm

u = – 47 cm

Putting the values in the mirror formula  v = 13  cm

It is positive hence the image will be erect / upright and formed on the back of the mirror.
