Answer:

Regular reflection  Diffused reflection
1 When all the parallel rays reflected from a plane surface are parallel, the reflection is known as regular reflection When all the parallel rays reflected from a plane surface are not parallel, the reflection is known as diffused or irregular reflection
2 It takes place from a smooth or regular surface It takes place from a rough surface
3 Images are formed by regular reflection Images are not formed by irregular reflection.

The diffused reflection is not due to the failure of laws of reflection but caused by irregularities in the reflecting surface
