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. $$45^{\circ}$$

The angle of incidence for a ray of light at a refracting surface of a prism is $$45^{\circ}$$. The angle of the prism is $$60^{\circ}$$. If the ray suffers minimum deviation through the prism, the angle of minimum deviation and refractive index of the material of the prism respectively, are:

 1 $$45^{0},~\sqrt{2}$$ 2 $$30^{0},~\sqrt{2}$$ 3 $$30^{0},~\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$$ 4 $$45^{0},~\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}$$
