Dear student
 
We know that
n = sin i /sinr 
 
1.5 = sin i / sin 30°
 
sin i = 0.75
 
On solving i = 18°36'
 
Hence Option A is correct.

Dear student 
The above explanation is very much incorrect , I feel sorry for that, 
You can use the formula \frac{n(prism)}{n(air)}
This is given by {Sin(A+dm)/2} /  Sin(A/2) = \frac{n(prism)}{n(air)}
Put all the values in it A = 30 , and dm is deviation here, 
So , the angle of deviation will comw out to be 15 degree and 16 minute , The ans given in the option is not matching , 
Ans is matching when tou will take (A+dm)/2 , it is 22 degree 83 minute. 
Hope this helps 
Good Luck
