Hey Bunuel

Can we assume that the figure given is drawn to scale ? Most of the resources I go through suggest that it's always better not to rely on the figure. I approached the question in the same but wasn't sure about the accuracy of figure.


OFFICIAL GUIDE:

Problem Solving
Figures: All figures accompanying problem solving questions are intended to provide information useful in solving the problems. Figures are drawn as accurately as possible. Exceptions will be clearly noted. Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight. The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero. All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.

Data Sufficiency:
Figures:
• Figures conform to the information given in the question, but will not necessarily conform to the additional information given in statements (1) and (2).
• Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight.
• The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero.
• All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.

No need for accuracy in fig...
fig just shows that beam lies in first quadrant...
And as shown 3690=360*10+90..
then beam lies ahead of 90 deg. moving clockwise direction
being its initial position is 1 deg. or 89 deg it would lie in 4th quad ..
As 1+90=91 deg...4th quad
or 89+90=179=4th quad..
Suff...
