Short Tricks to Solve Mirror Image Questions in Reasoning
Many candidates face problem to find difference between mirror images that's why they prefer leaving these questions than attempt. Don't throw these questions from your bouquet of marks. These 1 or 2 questions may be helpful for passing exam. So, today we are providing the short tricks to solve mirror images questions in reasoning.
A mirror image is a reflected duplication of an object that appears identical but reversed (Lateral Inversion). In simple words - when we see a reversed object in mirror, right part of the object appears in a left and vice - versa, but the upper and lower part remains constant, it is called a "mirror image" these are few images which always have the same reflection as they are in mirror, i.e. -

In Geometry :
Have you ever see your face in mirror ? basically in mirror right hand becomes left and left hand become right, right ? and your head seems to be same as you thinking right ? So that's tricks in mirror image right part of contents appears on left side and left part of contents appears right side but the top upper level and down lower level remains same.
Let's come on Mirror Image Short Tricks
The figure obtain by putting a mirror in front of the real image is known as mirror image or we can say that the reflection of an object into the mirror is called its mirror image.
Let us consider an example
From the above figure, it is clear that in a mirror image top and bottom of an image does not change but LHS (Left Hand Side) of a real image becomes RHS (Right Hand side) in mirror image. So, it can be concluded that the mirror image is the lateral inversion of the real image. Now, look at the following figures :
Take a mirror and place it along the vertical dotted line running through the middle of this shape. You will see that the half figure on the left together with its image in the mirror on the right gives the complete figure of the heart.
So, we can say that on combining the original and mirror image together, they form a symmetry.
