A ray of light is incident at an angle of $20^{\circ}$ to the normal. What is the deviation caused due to reflection?

$(a)\;20^{\circ} \\ (b)\;80^{\circ} \\ (c)\;120^{\circ} \\ (d)\;140^{\circ} $

1 Answer

The original path of light is AC.
The reflected ray deviates from its original path by $\delta =180 -(20+20)$
$\qquad=140 ^{\circ}$
Hence d is the correct answer.
