What is the polarization of the following wave?

E = (x 20∠0 + y 20∠90°)e-j3z, where x and y are unit vectors

I haven't been able to make an attempt because i have no idea how to start and none of the equations i got in class seem to apply. I know that polarization refers to the direction that the E vector is facing in relation to the wave direction

I figured it out. It's counter-clockwise circular polarization.
