Is it possible to have total internal reflection for light incident from air into water? Explain why or why not?

Total internal reflection can occur only from a medium of higher refractive index to a medium of low refractive index. Please note that water has higher refractive index than water.

So total internal reflection can not occur for light from air to water.
