Q 2 - At what time somewhere around 3 and 4 o'clock will the hand of a clock be together?

**Answer - A**

At 3 o'clock, the hour hand is at 3 and the moment hand is at 12. Consequently, they are 15 minutes spaces separated. To be as one, the moment hand must pick up 15 minutes throughout the hour hand. 55 Min. are picked up by min. hand in 60 min. 15 min. will be picked up by it in (60/55*15) min. = 180/11 min. Subsequently the hand will match at 180/11 min. past 3.

Q 3 - At what time somewhere around 7 and 8 o' clock will the hand of a check be in the same straight line yet not together?

Be that as it may, they are as one after 65 min. ∴ pickup in 65 min.(716/11-65)= 5/11 min. Pick up in 24 hours= (5/11*1440/65) min. ∴ the clock picks up =440/43 min. in 24 hours.

Q 5 - A watch which picks up consistently is 5 min.slow at 8 o'clock in the morning on Sunday and it is 5 min.48 sec. quick at 8p.m on taking after Sunday. At the point when was it right?

Time from 8a.m on Sunday to 8p.m on taking after Sunday = 7 days 12 hours = 180 hours ∴ the watch increases (5+29/5) min. on the other hand 54/5 min. in 180 hrs. Presently 54/5 min. are picked up in 180 hrs. ∴ 5 min. are picked up in (180*5*5/54) hrs. = 83 hrs. 20min. = 3days 11 hrs and 20 min. ∴ Watch is right 3 days 11 hrs and 20 min. after 8 am of Sunday. ∴ it will be right at 20 min. past 7 p.m on Wednesday.
