Are these numbers you have provided in degrees?

Complement of an angle makes up 90 degrees, supplement makes up 180 degrees.

Consider the angle 70 degrees, its complement will be 20 degrees (90-70), its supplement will be 110 degrees (180-70)

So, what's the angle? Are you saying that the measure of angle A is $1rad$ or $1^{\circ}$, or what?

the books just says to find compliment and suppliment of each angle.

question (a) 1
question (b) 2

the answer in the back was complement : pie/2-1 ~ .57
supplement : pie -1 ~ 2.14

You are in radians my friend. Note that $\frac{\pi}{2}=90^{\circ}$

I have given you the definition, you need to give us a unit of measure so we can help further.
