1. A shiny metal utensil forms an image but the image is not as clear as that formed by a mirror?

The image formed by the shiny utensil is not clear as that formed by a mirror because utensil surface is not so smooth as the mirror is, in which a clear image is formed by regular reflection.

This is because the mirror has a smoother surface than the shiny metal utensil and therefore the light rays are refelcted in the same direction for the image to be formed. :)
