Possible mirrors?

  The two top view diagrams shown were drawn by a student who is studying image formation by a plane mirror.   Each diagram shows the location of an object and two lines of sight to the image of that object in the mirror.   For each diagram, determine whether or not the situation illustrated is possible.   If a situation is possible, draw the location and orientation of the mirror.   Explain briefly how you reached your conclusions.

Based on L.C.McDermott et al., Tutorials in Introductory Physics (Prentice Hall, 1998).
