Law of reflection -
1) Incident ray, reflected rays and normal at the point of incidence lie in the same plane.
2) Angle of incidence is equal to angle of reflection.
- wherein
L_{i}= L_{r}
x+2(90-\theta )+\theta =180

y+2(90-\theta )+\theta =180
from \: \: \Delta ABC
3\theta =180
=>\theta =60^{\circ}

Dear friend the correct answer is 60° . The explanation is little bit tough without ray diagram.
Let assume the angle between the mirror is ¢.
The incident ray is parallel to one mirror and the final reflected ray is parallel to othe rmirror 
So ,angle between the rays will be 180-¢ including direction of ray . Angle of deviations is 180-¢
As we know that the angle of deviation is also equal to 2¢ so
180-¢ = 2¢
And ¢=60°
Hope you understood my method . This is also a correct method.
