Above resonance frequency, the circuit is inductive.

The reactive voltage VL and VC, does it cancel each other at resonance? Can anyone explain?

Resonant frequency(fr) = 1/(2 * 3.14 * (LC)1/2,
Take that root.
Given that RLC circuit is above the fr then we know XL > XC in case fr is more then current must be low and that case current should be lags by applied voltage.

Resonant frequency XL>XC. So current lags the applied voltage.

At resonant condition.

XL = XC @ resonant frequency.

Resonant frequency more if XL>XC and less if XL<XC.

Here it is more and it means XL is high and hence L is high (XL = 360FL).

L always takes lags the current.

Hence the current lags the applied voltage.

Above resonance frequency current lags voltage because at this situation XL>XC.

At resonance I in phase with V.

At resonance, Xl =XC. Thus there no phase angle. Therefore; no lug or lead.
