    Answer is 60 degree

    Explanation:-
    Let the angle be X
    Therefore, its complement = 90 – X  & supplement = 180 – X

    If the compliment of an angle is one-fourth of its supplementary angle. 
    Then,  90 – X = (180 – X)/4
    By cross multiplication, 
    4 (90 – X)  = 180 – X
    360 – 4 X = 180 – X
    4 X – X = 360 – 180 
    3 X = 180 
    X = 180/3
    X = 60 degree

    Then, the value of angle is 60 degree. 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (4) 60 degree.
