**Hint:**To solve this problem one must have knowledge about the condition of maxima and minima or constructive or destructive interference. When one part of ray will be reflected and another will refract, it will create either constructive or destructive interference based on path difference.

**Formula Used:**

Formula for solving this question is \[2\mu t\cos r = \lambda \] where \[\mu \] , \[t\] , \[r\] , \[\lambda \] are refractive index, thickness of plate, angle of refraction and wavelength of ray.

**Complete step by step answer:**

To understand this question let’s deduce the expression from the very beginning.

Let’s consider a plane plate

Let’s calculate the path difference $\Delta x = \mu (AC + CD) - AB$ . $\mu t$ is optical distance

So, $\Delta x = \dfrac{{\mu t}}{{\cos r}} + \dfrac{{\mu t}}{{\cos r}} - AB$

$\angle BDA = \angle i$

Because $[AB = AD\sin i = 2AE\sin i = 2d\tan r\sin i = 2d\tan r\mu \sin r]$

So, $\Delta x = \dfrac{{2\mu t}}{{\cos r}} - 2\mu t \times \tan r \times \sin r$

On further solving, $\Delta x = \dfrac{{2\mu t}}{{\cos r}}\left\{ {\dfrac{1}{{\cos r}} - \tan r \times \sin r} \right\} = 2\mu t.\cos r - - - (1)$ .

Till now we calculated the path difference generated due to difference in path length, but we need to consider the path difference that occurred due to reflection. Due to reflection there is a phase difference of 180 degrees and 360 degrees corresponds to $\lambda $ . So, 180 degrees will cause a path difference of $\dfrac{\lambda }{2}$ . So, adding $\dfrac{\lambda }{2}$ in equation (1).

So \[\Delta x = 2\mu t.\cos r + \dfrac{\lambda }{2} - - - (2)\] which is our final path difference

We know for destructive interference or dark spot path differences must be an odd multiple of wavelength.

So, \[2\mu t.\cos r + \dfrac{\lambda }{2} = (2n + 1)\dfrac{\lambda }{2}\] for n=1

\[ \Rightarrow 2\mu t\cos r = \lambda \]

Finally putting values given in the question

$\therefore t = \dfrac{\lambda }{{2\mu \cos r}} = \dfrac{{5890{A^\circ }}}{{2 \times 1.5 \times \cos {{60}^\circ }}} = 3926{A^\circ }$

$\therefore$ the correct option is A.

**Note:**In order to know more about interference, one should study about young’s double slit experiment and superposition of waves. This question was asked about bright spots. Then we need to apply conditions for constructive interference and the path difference will be even multiple of wavelength, and then we will solve accordingly.
