    Looks like the question is "mixing" radians with degrees.

    I assume \theta = 6 is in radians, and the given answer choices are in degrees.

    are you leaving that information out of the directions?

    I was utterly confused myself, though I did copy the question fully from the book.

    reference angle is in quadrant IV and equals 2\pi - 6

    now convert the radian angle 2\pi - 6 into degrees.
