See explanation.
Explanation:
This angle lies in the 4th quadrant.
To find the quadrant in which the angle lies you have to follow these steps:

Subtract
#360^o# until you get an angle smaller than#360^o# . This rule comes from the fact that#360^o# is a full angle. 
The remaining angle
#x# lies in: 
1st quadrant if
#x <=90#  2nd quadrant if
#90 < x <=180 #  3rd quadrant if
#180 < x <= 270#  4th quadrant if
#270 < x < 360#
