Two slabs with parallel faces are made from different types of glass. A ray of light travels through air and enters each slab at the same angle of incidence. Which slab has the greater index of refraction and why?

slab A is a light colored glass maybe transparent. The ray of light travel through the glass at the same angle it enters the glass.

slab B is of a darker color and the ray of light at initial entry is bent slightly downwards then at then at an angle.
