1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Doing some practice problems to prepare for upcoming exam and ran across this:

A real image is
a. One in which light does not pass through the image point but appears to diverge from that point
b. One for which the magnification equal 1
c. An excellent image
d. An image that can be projected onto a screen
e. None of these

From what I learn, a real image is located in the plane of convergence for light that originate from a given object. I can easily eliminate (b) and (c). I'm just wondering if (d) could be an equivalent statement to a real image, or is it none of the above? Thanks

That's good to hear. So can you (or someone) help lead my though process to the correct conclusion?
