A beam of light composed of red and green rays is incident obliquely at a point on the face of a rectangular glass slab. When coming out on the opposite parallel face, the red and green rays emerge from:

1. Two points propagating in two different parallel directions
2. One point propagating in two different directions through the slab
3. One point propagating in the same direction through the slab
4. Two points propagating in two different non-parallel directions

The refractive index of the material of a prism is 2 and its refracting angle is \(30^{\circ}\). One of the refracting surfaces of the prism is made a mirror inwards. A beam of monochromatic light entering the prism from the other face will retrace its path after reflection from the mirrored surface if its angle of incidence on the prism is:
1. \(60^{\circ}\)
2. \(0^{\circ}\)
3. \(30^{\circ}\)
4. \(45^{\circ}\)
