Right option is (b) 30° – 40°

Best explanation: The V-belts are made of fabric and cords moulded in rubber and covered with fabric and rubber. These belts are moulded to a trapezoidal shape and are made endless. These are particularly suitable for short drives. The included angle for the V-belt is usually from 30° to 40°.
