draw a circle in quadrant 2

reflect that into quadrant 3

which axis did you reflect around?

If it were around the negative 45 deg line(y= -x), it would never have left quadrant 2

If it were around the positive 45 degree line (y=x) it would have jumped int quadrant 4

If it were around the y axis, it would have moved right into quadrant 1

So, it went the x axis route, down into quadrant 3
