Thank you for the answers. Very strange that the correct answer is not given (except for no 2).

I concur that the normal procedure would be from Chart (T) to Compass, however its an exam question so it's testing the reader's knowledge. Though I think a bit unfair not to offer the correct answer, except no 2 (I checked and re-checked my calculations several times).

I've not seen a drift angle given before in questions, normally its an off-track distance after cruising 30/60/90/120 nm, where the 1 in 60 rule is used to calculate a correction heading.

all good fun for the classroom .
