ie., PF indicates how much apparent power is real power(true power) not reactive power

Power factor, cos phi = R/Z. R  Resistance. Z  Impedance. R gives true power and Z gives the apparent power. Where Z = R + I (XL  XC).

Power factor defined as cosine angle between voltage and current. Same like it also defined p/s. Where p is real power and s is apparent power.

Powerfactor = true power/apparent power hence answer is correct.
