Yes, the statement is correct. A convex lens of focal length 20 cm will produce a magnified virtual image if object is placed at a distance less than 20 cm from the lens.

A convex lens of focal length 20 cm will produce a magnified real image if object is placed at a distance greater than 20 cm and less than 40 cm from the lens.
