Correct option is
A

Due to lateral inversion

On reflection from plane mirrors, Objects undergo lateral inversion.
Most of the alphabets are not symmetrical laterally and on reflection produce unrecognizable alphabets. Also, letters on the right appear on the left. This hurt the sequence of letters and makes words and sentences meaningless.
