For regular reflection of light, the angles of incidence as well as the angles of reflection are the same for all parallel rays of light incident on the plane and smooth surface. Hence, the reflected rays are also parallel to one another.

For irregular reflection of light, the angles of incidence for parallel rays of light incident on the rough surface are not equal, and hence the angles of reflection are also not equal. Here, the reflected rays are not parallel to one another and spread over a large surface.
