If ray OA is perpendicular to OB after rotation, ∠AOB is 90 degrees.

If need be, draw the end result (in diagram, where OA is red) to track on ray's movement.

Original ray OA is rotated clockwise 9 degrees: it moves from left to right 9 degrees.

Measure of ∠AOB before rotation? It "shrank." So add: 90 + 9 = 99 degrees.

Answer C

You can do this problem with compass (absolute bearing and relative bearing) or clock angles; IMO, unnecessarily complicated. YMMV.

Edited for a typo that created a grammatical mistake which could cause problems in SC. Answer remains the same.
