Expert Answer:

Dear student
Reflection of light is the phenomenon whereby a part of the light falling on boundary seperating two media is sent back into the first medium; remaining part of the light is absorbed if the substance is opaque or it is partly transmitted and partly absored if the substance is transparent.
We hope this clarifies your doubt.
