Phase angle is the difference between angles of two waveforms-
so Wave 1 = 15 deg
and wave 2 = 55 deg
so Phase angle = 55-15 = 40 deg.

Phase angle is difference between two magnitudes degrees.

Phase angle is the difference between two magnitudes or degrees what is given in the question?

55-15=40.

Thanks for explaining the answer.

Phase angle is nothing but phase difference or phase displacement of two wave from.

So, 55 - 15 = 40.

C is the answer because phase difference =Phase 1 - phase2 = 50-15 = 40.
