The answer is letter C. An azimuth is a horizontal angle measured clockwise from true north, magnetic north, or grid north. To make this easier to understand, here are a few details regarding azimuths that you need to remember which may come in handy in the future:

1) The angles in azimuths are measured clockwise, 2) These angles are measured from any reference meridian, 3) Azimuths range from 0 degree to 360 degrees, 4) Azimuths are always referenced from north, not south, 5) When we talk about true north, it talks about true azimuths and 6) If we talk about magnetic north, it refers to magnetic azimuths which refer to the curve between the certain point on the horizon below the direction of the magnetic north.
