"Two girls," suggested another user. "The rest is the effect produced by the reflection of the mirror."

Agreeing with 'two girls' theory, another user known as Srishti delved a lot deeper.

"The 3rd girl doesn't reflect herself so, it's definitely not 3!! The fourth girl doesn't seem to sit close to the wall but the reflection is..So, they're definitely two!"

So how many girls are there in this photo?
