   u =  -(50 - 12) = - 38 cm
 v = 88-50 = 38 cm
1/v - 1/u = 1/f 
1/38 - 1/-38 = 1/f
f = 19 cm

u = -(50-31) = -19 cm          v = ?  f = 19 cm
1/v = 1/u+1/f = 0  => Image will form at infinity, as the candle is at the focus.

   Let us say u = - 3f/4       
     1/v = 1/u + 1/f = -4/3f + 1/f = -1/3f 
     v = - 3f    =>    a virtual magnified erect image is formed on the same side as the candle.

d) see diagram.
