Correct option is
B

convex mirror

From given passenger statements image distance is grater then object distance from mirror ie . and also size of image is smaller then object.
Now,
In plane mirror; Image distance should be equal to object distance and magnification
For curve mirror,
 When its mean that object should be between pole and optical center. in such case concave mirror always formed Magnified and inverted image. whereas Concave mirror formed diminished and erect image.
Hence Given mirror will be Convex mirror. 
So option B.
