As our calculation is straightforward, we'll just do it.
This is a Precise approach.

\(\angle\)PST = 360 - \(\angle\)RST - \(\angle\)RSP
We're told that \(\angle\)RST = 90 and we can calculate \(\angle\)RSP as 180 - 48 = 132.
Then \(\angle\)PST = 360 - 90 - 132 = 138.

(E) is our answer.

Given ∠RST = 90
=> ∠QST = 90-48 = 42
Now, ∠QST+∠PST= 180
So, ∠PST=180-∠QST= 180-42 = 138

Hence answer is E

Since angle PST + angle TSQ = 180 degrees, and since angle TSQ is 90 - 48 = 42 degrees, angle PST is:

180 - 42 = 138 degrees

Answer: E
