  1. If you know your trig relations and formulas, then its clearly C

    otherwise, you could test them with some angles.
    Remember, if you find even one exception to a mathematical rule, then that rule is invalid
    A, let Ø = 20, then its complement is 70°
    sin20 = appr .342
    sin70 = appr .94 , so it is NOT A

    B) cos20 = appr .94 (mmm, wasn't that sin70° ???)
    sin 160 = .342 , so NOT B

    C)
    sin20 = .342
    cos70 = .342 , mmmhhh?

    let's take a really weird angle
    sin 37.1234° = .603533676 -- on my calculator
    cos(90 - 37.1234)
    = cos( 52.8766) = .603533676
    well, what are the chances of that ???

    Sure looks like C

    of course, if you haven't already learned,
    sin Ø = cos(90°-Ø) for any value of Ø

    your D is not complete
