Two polaroids \(P_{1}\) and \(P_{2}\) are placed with their axis perpendicular to each other. Unpolarised light \(I_{o}\) is incident on \(P_{1}\). A third polaroid \(P_{3}\) is kept in between \(P_{1}\) and \(P_{2}\) such that its axis makes an angle \(\left(45\right)^{\circ}\) with that of \(P_{1}\). The intensity of transmitted light through \(P_{2}\)

1. \(\frac{I_{o}}{2}\)

2. \(\frac{I_{o}}{4}\)

3. \(\frac{I_{o}}{8}\)
