Light ray incident normally on side of prism at A . As seen from figure , light ray incident with angle of incidence 60o at B on oposite side .

Since angle of incidence is greater than critical angle , total internal reflection is taking place at B.
Hence light ray is reflected at B with angle of reflection 60o .

As can be seen from figure , reflected light ray makes normal incidence  at C on third side of prism .
Hence the light ray emerges out of the prism by making angle 90o with the third side of prism.

Conclusion :-
If light ray makes normal incidence at one side , then it emerges out from third side by making 90o with third side .

Overall deviation is 60o
