1. the scattering of light.
2. the polarisation of light.
3. the colour of the sun.
4. the colour of the sky.

The speed of light in media \(M_1\) and \(M_2\) is \(1.5\times10^{8}\) m/s and \(2.0\times10^{8}\) m/s respectively. A ray of light enters from medium \(M_1\) and \(M_2\) at an incidence angle \(i.\) If the ray suffers total internal reflection, the value of \(i\) is:

1. equal to or less than \(\text{sin}^{-1}\left (\frac{3}{5} \right )\)
2. equal to or greater than \(\text{sin}^{-1}\left (\frac{3}{4} \right )\)
3.  less than \(\text{sin}^{-1}\left (\frac{2}{3} \right )\)
4. equal to \(\text{sin}^{-1}\left (\frac{2}{3} \right )\)

A converging beam of rays is incident on a diverging lens. Having passed through the lens the rays intersect at a point \(15~\text{cm}\) from the lens on the opposite side. If the lens is removed the point where the rays meet will move \(5~\text{cm}\) closer to the lens. The focal length of the lens is:
1.  \(5~\text{cm}\)
2. \(-10~\text{cm}\)
3. \(20~\text{cm}\)
4. \(-30~\text{cm}\)
