What should a person recite in the second rakaat if Surah Ikhlaas was recited in the first rakaat?

Q: If Surah Ikhlaas is mistakenly recited in the first Rakaat, what is the best Surah to then recite in the second Rakaat?

A: In a fard salaah recite surah falaq and in a nafil salaah you may recite surah falaq or surah naas.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
