Brewster angle & polarised light

A beam of polarised light is incident at Brester angle to a piece of glass. Which is true?

The ans is the refracted ray is polarized in the plane of incident beam , and the reflected ray is polarised in the plane normal to the plane of incident beam. Or
The reflected ray is polarized in the plane of incident beam , and the refracted ray is polarised in the plane normal to the plane of incident beam?
For me the above statement is correct… I need someone to verify my ans….
