It's S70W if we go anti-clockwise, and N70W in clockwise.

But since there is only N70W in the options, so the right answer here is N70W.

Yes, I am agree with you, Thanks @Sanjay.

The right answer will be S70° W.

A bearing that defines the direction of a survey line by its horizontal angle measured clockwise from true north.

So it we go clockwise, it will fall in 4th quadrant i.e NW.
Hence, the correct answer is N70W.

So,
RB = N(360 - 290)W.
= N70W.

I think the right answer is S 20° W.

Draw 290 on co-ordinates. It will under NW. Therefore 360-290 = N70W.

How can we say it is north-west direction?
