You have to ask what happens to the image in each scenario.

a) Between the lens and F' - The image is inverted and appears larger than the real object's height.
b) At F' - no image
c) Between F' and 2F' - inverted image x2 of object
d) At 2F' - inverted image
e) Beyond 2F' - inverted image smaller in size

So based on that. I've concluded

a) telescope
b) no image-can't think how this would apply to practical application in real life.
c) microscope
d) again, can't seem to think how this would apply in real life
e) camera
