Expert Answer
Incident ray:

The ray of light which strikes a mirror or the interface of a medium to undergo reflection or refraction respectively is called the incident ray.

The angle made by the incident ray with the normal is called angle of incidence.

 
 
Reflected ray:

The ray which gets reflected after hitting the object is known as reflected ray.
 
The angle between a reflected ray and a line perpendicular to the reflecting surface at the point of incidence is the angle of reflection.
