Solution

(b) Speed of light in water is smaller than its speed in vacuum.

(c) Light shows interference.

 

Snell's Law, which states that the speed of light reduces on moving from a rarer to a denser medium, can be concluded from Huygens' wave theory and interference of light waves is based on the wave properties of light.
