Expert Answer:


It is the image which:

1. Cannot be caught on the screen.

2. Is always errect image.

3. Image is formed behind the mirror.



Erect means it is not distorted(or crumbled).

An erect image is an image in which, the up-down reversal is not occurred. That is, the image will be standing like the object.

Example: the image produced by a plane mirror is an erect image.
