Correct Answer - Option 2 : 344° 32'


  • Whole circle bearing:
    • In this system, the bearing of the line is measured from the north in a clockwise direction.
  • Reduced bearing or Quadrantal bearing:
    • Reduced bearing is measured either from the north end or the south end as the case may be i.e. whichever is nearer to the line. the reduced bearing of a line can vary from 0 to 90.


Whole circle bearing = 360° - 15° 28' = 344° 32'
