Solution

 \[\frac{\pi}{2}\]

\[P Q^2 = \left( 4 - 0 \right)^2 + \left( - 2 - 1 \right)^2 + \left( 1 - 2 \right)^2 = 16 + 9 + 1 = 26\]
\[O P^2 = \left( 0 - 0 \right)^2 + \left( 1 - 0 \right)^2 + \left( 2 - 0 \right)^2 = 0 + 1 + 4 = 5\]
\[Q O^2 = \left( 0 - 4 \right)^2 + \left( 0 + 2 \right)^2 + \left( 0 - 1 \right)^2 = 16 + 1 + 4 = 21\]
\[Since, P Q^2 = O P^2 + Q O^2 \]
\[Hence, ∠POQ = \frac{\pi}{2}\]
