Solution

The correct option is C All (a),(b),(c),and (d)According to Snell's law,μ1μ2=sinθ1sinθ2=c⇒c=μ1μ2(where, μ1 and μ2 are the refractive indices of media 1 and 2 respectively and θ1 and θ2 are the angles of incident and refraction respectively)⇒c=speed of light in medium 2speed of light in medium 1⇒c=wavelength of light in medium 2wavelength of light in medium So, the constant depends on the pair of media, the color of the incident light, wavelength, and refracting nature of the material.
