(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 Johnâ€™s face reflected in a mirror, the photographer having taken the photograph over Johnâ€™s shoulder.
(E) It was one of only a few taken at the wedding that showed no one but John.

It should be (D).

John is the only person who can usually see himself in a mirror.

D is the best choice because the photo is a reflection of John himself in a mirror. If the mirror image is not the best resemblance of a person, then what is?

Thks Wilfred.

However, why did John's friends say that his reflection in the mirror does not resemble him? Both John and his friends should agree that John's reflection in mirror resembled John.

John's friends always see John face to face.
John never see himself face to face.
John only sees himself in the mirror.

Therefore, John is the only person who is accustomed to the self-image in the mirror.
