Correct option is D)

From geometry we see that both the angles from normal inside the sphere are equal(r). This results from being angles opposite to equal sides of a triangle.

Applying Snell's Law at both the surfaces gives,

$sini=μsinr$ (Surface 1)

$μsinr=sine$ (Surface 2)

Hence we see $i=e$ which means that total internal reflection does not take place.

However, Statement 2 is true. Total internal reflection takes place when a ray of light goes from denser to rarer medium, when incident with an angle greater than a critical angle. But this does not take place in the above case.
