Yes, you are right @Kalpesh.

And it is parallel to turbine axis.

I feel there are stator blades between each stage of the turbine which convert the steam flow from radial to axial flow otherwise if you view it nature then the flow is parallel to the turbine blade which is radial flow only.

When the flow of steam is parallel to turbine blade than it is known as radial flow turbine, but when flow flowing through perpendicular to the shaft (90 degree) than it is known as axial flow turbine.

Velocity diagram for axial discharge, it should be clearly mention that is 90.

Here velocity is axially discharging so answer is 90.
