The answer is in the puzzle, you just have to see it.

The only other option I can come up with is zero, due to the mirror paradox.
The mirror paradox Measure of Doubt

And Herk is the winner. He got the correct answer, the hard way.

If you reread the puzzle, there is one sentence that is key. It states there is nothing else in the room.......which would include light. It's hard to see any reflections when you're sitting in the dark.

I always tell people to empty out a refrigerator and line it with mirrors. Now get inside and close the door. How many reflections do you see?

I's sure there will be a few forehead slaps about now.
