Why is this an enantiomer?

Hi, I'm attaching the question and the solution to this post. I hope it is clear. If it isn't, I'll try uploading a clearer version.

I need help with part (ii). I'm not sure why it is an enantiomer. Enantiomer's are non-superimposable mirror images of each other. But the molecules are not mirror images, so why are they enantiomers?

EDIT:
The images I attached are not clear, and I am sorry about that. I don't know how to upload a clear image. I pasted two dropbox links below which provides clear images of my question.
