    aeroplane goes boom!

    An aeroplane travels from town P to town Q on a bearing of S60E. If the aeroplane returns from town P to town Q on the same route, its direction has a true bearing of:


    A) 060 B)120 C)150 D) 240 E) 300



    I am just not sure of the wording in this problem. Please prove a diagram or explanation for the above.
