Yes, a convex lens of focal length 20 cm can produce a magnified virtual as well as real image. The statement is correct. For magnified virtual image, the object must be held at a distance less than 20 cm from the lens. For magnified real image, the object must be held at a distance between 20 cm and 40 cm from the lens.
