Questions and Answers

Q 1 - At what time between 2 and 3 o' clock will the hands of a clock be together?

A - 120/11 min past 2

B - 10 min past 2

C - 11 min past 2

D - None of these

Answer : A

Explanation

At 2 o' clock, the hour hand is at 2 and minute hand is at 12
i.e. they are 10 min spaces apart.
The minute hand has to gain 10 minute spaces
over the hour hand to be together.

The minute hand gains 55 mins in 60 mins.
∴ It will gain 10 mins in 60/55 * 10 min
= 120/11 minutes.

Hence the hands will coincide at 120/11 minutes past 2.

Q 2 - Find the time between 8 and 9 o' clock will the hands of a clock be in the same straight line but not together.

A - 120/11 min to 9

B - 120/11 min past 8

C - 11 min past 8

D - None of these

Answer : B

Explanation

At 8 o? clock, the two hands are 20 min spaces apart.
To be in the same straight line but not together,
they will be 30 min spaces apart.
So, the minute hand will have to gain (30-20)
= 10 minute spaces over the hour hand.

= 60/55 * 10 = 120/11

∴The hands will be in the same straight line
but not together at 120 min past 8.

Q 3 - Find the angle between the two hands of a clock at 15 minutes past 5 o' clock.

A - 30°

B - 35°

C - 67.5°

D - 37.5°

Answer : C

Explanation

At 15 minutes past 5 o' clock, the minute hand is at 3
and hour hand is slightly ahead of 5.

In 60 minutes, the hour hand moves ahead by 300
∴ In 15 minutes, the hour hand moves ahead by = (30/60)*15
= 7.5°

Angle between 3 and 5 hour spaces = 60°.
∴ The total angle between the two hands at
 15 minutes past 5 o' clock = 60 + 7.5 = 67.5°

Q 4 - Find the angle between the two hands of a clock at 5:30 PM.

A - 15°

B - 20°

C - 25°

D - None of these

Answer : A

Explanation

At 5:30 PM, the minute hand is at 6 and hour hand is past 5 but behind 6.
In 60 minutes, the hour hand moves ahead by 30°.
∴ In 30 minutes, hour hour hand moves ahead by
= 30*(30/60)°
= 15°

Angle between 5 and 6 hour spaces = 30°.
Hence, angle between the two hands at 5:30 PM = (30 - 15) = 15°.

Q 5 - At 3.40, the hour hand and the moment hand of a clock from a point of

A - 120°

B - 125°

C - 130°

D - 135°

Answer : C

Explanation

Angle followed by hour hand in 12 hours= 360°
Point followed by hour it in 11/3 hrs. =(360/12*11/3)= 110°
Point followed by moment hand in 60 min. =360°
Point followed by it in 40 min. =(360/60*40) = 240°
∴ Required Angle = (240-110)= 130°

Q 6 - At what edge the hands of a clock are slanted at 15 min. past 5?

A - 117°/2

B - 64°

C - 135°/2

D - 145°/2

Answer : C

Explanation

Angle followed by hour hand in 21/4 hrs.=(360/12*21/4)°315°/2
Edge followed by min. hand in 15 min. =(360/12*15)°= 90°
∴ Required edge = (315/2)°-90°= 135°/2

Q 7 - How commonly do the hands of a check agree in a day?

A - 20

B - 21

C - 22

D - 24

Answer : C

Explanation

The hands of a check match 11 times in at regular intervals.
∴ The hands concur 22 times in a day.

Q 8 - What number times in a day, are the hands of a check in straight line however in bearing?

A - 22

B - 24

C - 44

D - 48

Answer : A

Explanation

The hands of a check point in inverse headings 11 times in every 12 Hours.
(since somewhere around 5 and 7 they point in inverse headings at 6 o'clock just)
So in a day, the hands point in the inverse headings 22 times.

Q 9 - At what time somewhere around 7 and 8 o'clock will the hands of a be in the Same straight line at the same time, not together?

A - 5 min. Past 7

B - 57/11 min. past 7

C - 58/11 min. past 7

D - 60/11 min. past 7

Answer : D

Explanation

When the check's hands are in the same straight line however not together. 
they are 30 moment spaces separated.
At 7 o' clock, they are 25 min. space separated.
∴ Minute hand will need to increase just 5 min. spaces.
55 min. spaces are picked up in 60 min.
5 min. spaces are picked up in (60/55*5)min=60/11 min.
∴ Required time=60/11 min. past 7.

Q 10 - A watch which pick up consistently is 2 minutes moderate at twelve on Monday What's more, is 4 min.48 sec quick at 2 p.m. on the next Monday. At the point when Is it true that it was right?

A - 2 p.m on Tuesday

B - 2 p.m on Wednesday

C - 3 p.m on Thursday

D - 1 p.m on Friday

Answer : B

Explanation

Time structure 12 p.m. on Monday to 2 p.m. on the accompanying
Monday =7 days 2 hours =170 hours.
∴ The watch gains(2+24/5)min.
on the other hand 34/5 min. in 170 hrs.
Now,34/5 min. are picked up in 170 hrs.
∴ 2 min. are picked up in (170(5/34*2) hrs=50 hrs.
Along these lines, the watch is right 2 days 2 hour after 12 p.m. on
Monday i.e.it will be right at 2 p.m. on Wednesday.
