# 'how Light Reflects' Quiz

7 Questions | Total Attempts: 1391  Settings  Reflection is when light bounces off an object. If the surface is smooth and shiny, like glass, water or polished metal, the light will reflect at the same angle as it hit the surface. This is called specular reflection. Here are some questions explaining light reflection in detail, all the best for the upcoming quiz!
