If the horizontal situation indicator displays a magnetic heading of 45 degrees and magentic bearing of 5 degrees to the tactical air navigation station, then the relative bearing is

• A.

45 degrees

• B.

225 degrees

• C.

320 degrees

C. 320 degrees
Explanation
The relative bearing is the difference between the magnetic heading and the magnetic bearing to the tactical air navigation station. In this case, the magnetic heading is 45 degrees and the magnetic bearing is 5 degrees. To find the relative bearing, subtract the magnetic bearing from the magnetic heading: 45 degrees - 5 degrees = 40 degrees.
