The refractive index of the material of a prism is $\sqrt{2}$ 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. $$45^{\circ}$$
