Correct option is
D

they form images which are much smaller than the objects

Convex mirrors are used as rear-view mirrors in motor vehicles because they form virtual and erect images which are much smaller than the objects irrespective of the distances of the object. The convex mirror helps the driver to view large areas of the traffic behind him and he can easily detect the vehicle coming or running behind him.
