Both A and B are correct.

If the line is along the north direction it is mentioned as N0° or due north.

If the line is along the south direction it is mentioned as S0° or due south.

If the line is along the east direction it is mentioned as N90°E or S90°E or due east.

If the line is along the west direction it is mentioned as N90°W or S90°W or due west.

In ques, it is given 270° means west direction.

If the line is along the north direction it is mentioned as N0° or due north.

If the line is along the south direction it is mentioned as S0° or due south.

If the line is along the east direction it is mentioned as N90°E or S90°E or due east.

If the line is along the west direction it is mentioned as N90°W or S90°W or due west.

In ques, it is given 270° means west direction.

Let us assume, WBC=30°, We can say In Reduced bearing is = N 30° E.

Another one assumes WBC=60°, can say in reduced bearing= E 30° N.

So, we can see which quadrant is nearest the angle is first written on a paper then the degree then the direction.

Hence, according to the question, the nearest is exact on W 90°.

Answer is C

If you see from both references N and S than it is same so confusion occurs.

If you write 90 W then it will be same as showing declination.

Due to this, all reason at this point answer is W 90.

Similarly,

0° = N 0,

180° = S 0,

90° = E 90,

270° = W 90.

Reduced bearing is always from the closest north or south, but in this case, N90W and S90W both are equidistant so option A and B is rejected. When we don't take reference either from north or south, we have to specify W but with W90 is given in option So we go for option C.

The Correct answer is D.

Because wcb 270 Means QB is S 90 W.

QB is measured by N and S side. That's N 90 W, and S 90 W.

Than 90 W is common.

The answer is 90 W.

Because wcb 270 Means QB is S 90 W.

QB is measured by N and S side. That's N 90 W, and S 90 W.

Than 90 W is common.

The answer is 90 W.

360-270=90.

As the 270 lies on exact quadrant line i.e 270.

So it is W only, not even in third and fourth quadrant.

Hence, option C and D are correct.

I think, options A) &B) is right. I know that in QB system to measure the angle of any line from north meridian and South meridian.

The Correct ans is D.

Because 270 means S 270 W.

Because wcb is always respect to N side measure.

The correct format are 90 W.

Because 270 means S 270 W.

Because wcb is always respect to N side measure.

The correct format are 90 W.

Correct @Jayraj.

Because in reduced bearings are done by surveyor compass.

S = 0.

W = 90.

N = 0.

E = 90.

Because in reduced bearings are done by surveyor compass.

S = 0.

W = 90.

N = 0.

E = 90.

The whole circle nearing of a line is 300 degree. It's Quadrantal bearing, right?
