Expert Answer:

There is error in the question . Convex mirror does not have focal point in front of reflecting side.
Focal point F of convex mirror is behind the mirror as shown in figure. 
 
If an object is placed between pole  and focal point  of convex mirror , we will not get any image because the object is facing
non-reflective side of mirror.
 
Question should be , if object is placed anywhere between infinity and pole of the mirror , where the image is formed ?
 
Answer :-
 
As shown in above figure, if object is placed anywhere between inifinty and pole of convex mirror,
a diminished , erect and virtual image is formed behind the mirror
