(a) complementary (b) supplementary

(c) both are acute (d) both are obtuse

**Solution :**

From the above figure, it is clear that the angle between North and West is 90° and

South and East is 90°.

∴ Sum of these two angles = 90° + 90° = 180°

Hence, the two angles are supplementary, as their sum is 180°.
