  • Angle of incidence is the angle between incident ray and normal.
    Here, angle of incidence is not with normal .   It is marked incorrectly

  • Angle of refraction is the angle between refracted ray and normal.
    So, here angle of incidence is angle r. So, it is marked correct

 

  • Angle of emergence is the angle between emergent ray and normal.
    Here, angle of emergence is not with normal .   It is marked incorrectly

  • Angle of deviation is the angle between emergent ray and incident ray (when produced backwards).
    So, here angle of incidence is angle D. So, it is marked correct

 

  • Angle of prism is the vertex angle of the prism.
    Here, it is angle A. It is marked correct

So, the correct answer is (b) -  ∠A and ∠D
