A small aircraft leaves Calgary on a heading of E30deg S (30 degrees south of east) travelling 200 km/h. it is affected by a 40 km/h wind blowing toward S60deg W (60 degrees west of south). After one hour the plane’s position relative to Calgary will be?

A) 183 km E45deg S
B) 183 km S30deg W
C) 204 km E45deg S
D) 204 km S30deg W
