Of all the photographs taken of him at his wedding there was one that John and his friends sharply disagreed about. His friends all said that this particular picture did not much resemble him, but John said that on the contrary it was the only photograph that did.

Which one of the following, if true about the photograph most helps to explain John's disagreement with his friends?

(A) It, unlike the other photographs of John, showed him in the style of dress he and his friends usually wear rather than the formal clothes he wore at the ceremony.
(B) It was the only photograph taken of John at his wedding for which the photographer had used a flash.
(C) It was a black-and-white photograph, whereas the other photographs that showed John were mostly color photographs.
(D) It was unique in showing John's face reflected in a mirror, the photographer having taken the photograph over John's shoulder.
(E) It was one of only a few taken at the wedding that showed no one but John.

feel A should be the answer...

May be John when he says it is the one, he is referring to his style... and his friends referring to the way he should have looked in the ceremony..

other points do not help much..

what's the OA?

I think the answer is D. While John's sees his reflection in the mirror everyday and thinks that's how he looks, the friends are seeing the mirror opposite in the picture of what they usually see of him.

I think it is D

John always saw himself in mirror, when the pick is taken from mirror he sees himself straight not as a mirror image
