r=45 ( x , y ) ===> ( x , y )
Tan θ = y/x
θ= Tan^-1 (y/x) = Tan ^-1 (44.31634889 / 7.814167995) = 80º
plug in all values
Q = 120 x 10 x Sin 80º = 1181.769304 VAR.
Even though none of the answers match i think this is the right answer.!!
The number you calculated is KVA not KVAR. Use the pyragorean theorem. Kva^2 = kw^2 + kvar^2. The mag*sine (theta) ×amps is the kvar = reactive power and not the apparent power in which you calculated. ( Those who read this, look up the power triangle and decide for yourselves)

I'm having problems taking exams on my phone and iPad can someone help
