This is a simple wording confusion. On one question that I did, the property for a positive focal length image was Real, Diminished and Inverted. On another question of the same type, the property for a positive focal length image was Real, Inverted and Smaller.

So, my confusion is the Diminished and Smaller property. Are they both the same thing?

Which one is more suitable in physics terms? Should I write Smaller or Diminished?

It doesn't matter, they are both equivalent.
