Hint: Convex lenses are the converging lens. The magnifying glass is a convex lens which produces a magnified and so the larger image of the object. Here, apply the properties of the convex lens and the image produced by it.
Complete step by step answer: A compound microscope is the microscope which uses a lens close to the object being viewed so that to collect light known as the objective lens which focuses a real image of the object inside the microscope. The image then is magnified by the second lens or the group of lenses known as the eyepiece which gives the viewer the magnified and an enlarged inverted virtual image of the object and therefore we do not get a real image. In other words - When a convex lens is used as the magnifying lens or the simple microscope, it produces the virtual, erect and enlarged image. Hence, the given statement - When a convex lens is used as a magnifying glass (simple microscope), a real, inverted and enlarged image is produced is false. Therefore, from the given multiple choices, option A is the correct answer.
Note: Always remember the difference between the concave and concave lenses. Also, remember the type of the image and the size of the image produced by placing the object at different distances.
