Hint:First study and understand what is meant by power factor. Power factor is used to determine the power consumed in an AC (alternating current) circuit. It is equal to the ratio of the real power consumed by the circuit to the apparent power given to the circuit.

In this case, the power factor of the circuit is $PF=\dfrac{Q}{P}$. Therefore, we can say that power factor helps us to determine how real power out of the apparent power given is consumed by the circuit. Hence, we can also say that the power factor (PF) indicates how much of the apparent power is true power.
