Just using P=I2 R, I come up with 1296 watts. I'm not sure that the 75kva rating of the transformer is especially relevant. I think there's something missing in your question to get one of the listed answers.

trans question.

Reading mike Holt's book--Power loss =I2xR. All transformers 95-97% efficient. Power =90x90x.16x.95=1231 watts probable ans. B. 1200 watts Thanks Al

Just to keep in mind that there are other factors that induce losses not included in the above equation. But for all practical purposes it is good enough for most purposes. Eddy current core losses etc and such cause problems for engineers but for us folks we need not concern ourselves too much.

90A primary or seconday???? Hmmm, I just threw a wrench in that question didn't I? Plus you should have a %Z.

Horrible question IMO.
