Refer to the following information for the next two questions.
Determine which path (PBS or PCS) requires the least time. If PBS has the least time, construct a normal at B. If PCS has the least time, construct a normal at C. Measure the angles between the top ray (
q
_{1}
) and the bottom ray (
q
_{2}
) with the normal.
