\vec{v}_{mr}=\vec{v}_{m}-\vec{r}

v_{m}=\vec{v}_{mr}+\vec{r}

\sin\theta =\frac{\left | \vec{v}_{r} \right |}{\left | v_{mr} \right |}=\frac{2}{4}=\frac{1}{2}

        \theta =30^{\circ}

Now, the angle with the downstream is 

   =90^{\circ}+30^{\circ}

    =120^{\circ}

 


Option 1)

90^{\circ}         

Option 2)

150^{\circ}

Option 3)

120^{\circ}

Option 4)

60^{\circ}
