The speed of light in media ${\mathrm{M}}_{1}$ and ${\mathrm{M}}_{2}$ is $1.5×{10}^{8}$ $\mathrm{m}/\mathrm{s}$ and $2.0×{10}^{8}$ $\mathrm{m}/\mathrm{s}$ respectively. A ray of light enters from medium ${\mathrm{M}}_{1}$ to ${\mathrm{M}}_{2}$ at an incidence angle i. If the ray suffers total internal reflection, the value of i is:

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

Given below are two statements:
 Statement I: In total internal reflection, the angle of incidence must be greater than a certain minimum angle which depends on the media involved. Statement II: Total internal reflection cannot occur when light is travelling from an optically rarer to a denser medium.

 1 Statement I is incorrect and statement II is correct. 2 Both statement I and statement II are correct. 3 Both statement I and statement II are incorrect. 4 Statement I is correct and statement II is incorrect.
