Hi jameel , It is very difficult to explain because these are very much medical terms. Anyway I am trying to explain you.
1. BRONCHOVASCULAR MARKINGS-marking of blood vessels in lung.
2. COSTOPHRENIC ANGLES- It is the angel between your ribs and lower end of your heart.
3. CARDIAC SHADOW- Heart shadow.
4. DIAPHRAGMATIC COPULA- Diaphragm is a large muscle helps you in respiration and seperate the thorax and abdomen.
Now everything is normal in the report except the bronchovascular markings, which is due to increased blood vessel in your lung. It may be due to some infection. Also in some normal people there may be increased broncho vascular markings.
Your blood report may help if there is some infection.
I hope you undrstood the Xray report.
Best of luck.
