Study the following diagrams in which the path of a ray of light passing through a glass prism as traced by four students P, Q, R and S is shown:
The student who has traced the path correctly is
Student Q has traced the path correctly.
When light is travelling from a rarer medium to a denser medium, it bends towards the normal to the surface, while the light from a denser medium to a rarer medium bends away from the normal to the surface.
Hence, the correct option is B.
