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
