me moquer

Even though the verb se moquer is reflexive, why don't you say me moquer if someone is mocking me, instead of se moquer as one test question has it?

Charles, as the verb ‘se moquer’ is reflexive, the subject noun/pronoun and the reflexive pronoun always refer to the same person/people.

“Tu te moques de moi” - You could think of it as ‘You make yourself laugh at me ’ or something similar if it helps to understand, but the easiest way in grammar is usually not to try to understand, but just accept and acquire.
