Expert Answer:

If the light source is inside water and the mirror is also kept in water, then it is reflection when light hits the mirror and turns back in water itself.
 
 
However, light source is in air and it is made to incident on water, that is, light travels from air medium to water, then it is not reflection. The light will undergo refraction instead of reflection.
