once check the refractive index of both are they correct?
yes, they are correct.
grammar mistake:- if the speed OF* light

Refractive index of a medium is defined as the ratio of speed of light in vacuum to speed of light in the medium.

given
Let velocity in vacuum = v
refractive index of glass is 3/2.
(you have given wrong information.)

So speed of light in vacuum is .

So speed of light in water is
tps i too had got these answer n i wrote them but u deleted it.
yeah...because you had to calculate them. Everyone knows the answer.
ok

V=2*10^8m/s
Ng=V/Vg
3/2=3*2*10^8/2
=3*10^8M/S
SPEED OF LIGHT IN VACUM
Nw=V/Vw
4/3=3*10^8/Vw
Vw=3*3*10^8/4
2.25*10^8M/S
