the glass of water acts as a converging lens, which creates an inverted real image?

Yes @Aritra jana

Hmm... Water has been learning how to use PhotoShop? JK, obviously for such an image to appear, we'd need a converging lens, and I don't see anything else suspicious, so it must be the water.

Due to cylindrical(curve) shape of water(thickness of glass neglected) image is inverted. Try a rectangular glass then arrows direction won't change!

It is due to water.water acts as a converging lens and form invertered image.

Pysics... angle of incedence = angoe of reflection. The curved surface of the glass and the desnsity? Of water causes the light to bend more/differently then if it were traveling through air.

Wow!! That is one of the beautiful reasons why i love science, lol!!

Thought it was about refraction when I say the water, but well physics is wide. Try using a ray diagram, awesome isn't it? Now since it is a concave mirror, try a convex one, you will get another awesome result!

when the water is filled in glass then it acts as a converging lens which makes real and inverted image

When we filled water bcs of this the refractive index changes which act like a cylinderical lens and inverted image is formed

It is due to water, as water acts as converging lens, which gives us an Inverted Real Image..........

internal total reflection

After water is poured due to total internal reflection image is reversed

When we add water, because of water reflection, the left arrow seems to be a right arrow.

On the right track just worded oddly.
