    South 70 east is the dip direction of the forest beds so it's the paleocurrent direction... N20E +90= 110 that is in 2nd quadrant

    The answer is C) S70°E as it is the direction of dip of foreset. The dip direction of foresets gives the palaeocurrent direction.

    But the forset is dipping in the S 22degrees E right? What you are considering is the strike isn't it?
