    The additional image sizes are generated by WordPress for use in adaptive image sizes. When you insert the image into a post, there’s actually a “srcset” parameter inserted with it. This gives the URLs to the browser and lets the browser decide which image is best to use. This means that browsers on big screens will use the higher resolution ones, and small mobile devices might use the smaller ones. Or the browser might determine it based on their internet connection speed. Basically, you don’t need to choose the size of the image yourself, the person viewing your site has the image chosen that works best for their particular situation.
