HOW CAN I HAVE 2 ANSWERS
Virtual images are images that you can only see, but essentially cannot touch.
Virtual images are created by diverging lenses, and the image size cannot be bigger than the actual object, since the magnification always winds up <=1.0.
There must be some sort of typo or misunderstanding about image position, since virtual images are always behind the lens, otherwise, you'd get a real image.
