The magnitude of the frictional force decreases as $\theta$ increases.

Work Step by Step

The force of friction has a direct relation with the normal force on the object by the surface. So as the normal force increases, the force of friction increases. Increasing θ decreases the normal force, which ultimately decreases the frictional force aswell.
