A BPSK scheme operating over an AWGN channel with noise power spectral density of N02, uses equi-probable signals $${s_1}\left( t \right) = \sqrt {{{2E} \over T}\,\sin \left( {{\omega _c}t} \right)}$$$and $${s_2}\left( t \right) = - \sqrt {{{2E} \over T}\,\sin \left( {{\omega _c}t} \right)}$$$

over the symbol interval, $$(0, T)$$. If the local oscillator in a coherent receiver is ahead in phase by 450 with respect to the received signal, the probability of error in the resulting system is

A
$$Q\left( {\sqrt {{{2E} \over {{N_0}}}} } \right)$$
B
$$Q\left( {\sqrt {{{E} \over {{N_0}}}} } \right)$$
C
$$Q\left( {\sqrt {{{E} \over {{2N_0}}}} } \right)$$
D
$$Q\left( {\sqrt {{{E} \over {{4N_0}}}} } \right)$$
