Expert Answer:

A  reflex action is an involuntary, automatic and instantaneous movement in response to a stimulus and is below the level of consciousness. No thinking is involved in reflex action

Reflex arc is the neural pathway that mediates a reflex action.

Pathway of reflex arc : Receptor -->  Sensory neuron --> Relay neuron --> Motor neuron --> Effector
