An object is located midway between the focal point and the center of a concave spherical mirror. Draw a ray diagram to locate its image. Is the image real or virtual, erect or inverted, magnified or reduced in size?

Completely baffled by above question and the next question. I've gotten the answers completely wrong to both, but would like to understand what is correct.

An object is located three times the focal length from a concave spherical mirror. Draw a ray diagram to locate its image. Is the image real or virtual, erect or inverted, magnified or reduced in size?

Thank you

1. So for the 1st question, I answered Virtual, Erect, and Magnified. It is marked wrong.

The 2nd question, I finally got Real, Inverted, and Reduced and it is marked correct.

Still don't understand what to do about the first question.
Thanks for trying to help me.

so I see it as real, inverted, and larger, Note on this sketch count as the object the downward arrow between f and c
