Questions and Answers

Answer : A

Explanation

At h o' clock, the minutes hand is 5 h minute spaces
behind the hour hand.
The minute hand gains 55 min spaces in 60 mins.

∴ The minute hand will gain 5h minute spaces
in 60/55 * 5h = 60h/11 minutes.

∴ The two hands will be together between
'h' and 'h+1' o' clock at (60/11)h minutes h o' clock.

Q 2 - At what time between 4 and 5 o' clock will the hands of a clock be at right angle?

A - 320/11 min past 4

B - 420/11 min past 4

C - 120/11 min past 4

D - 220/11 min past 4

Answer : B

Explanation

At 4 o' clock, the minute hand is 20 minute spaces behind the hour hand.
Now, when the two hands are at right angles, they are fifteen min spaces
apart. So, they are at right angles in following two cases.

Case I ? When the minute hand is 15 min spaces behind the hour hand.
In this case, min hand will have to gain (20-15) = 5 min spaces.
= (60/55)*5 = 60/11
∴ They are at right angle at 60/11 minutes past 4.
Case II ? When the minute hand is 15 minute spaces ahead of the hour hand.
In this case the minute hand will have to gain (20+15) = 35 min spaces.
= (60/55)*35 = 420/11 min
∴ They are at right angles at 420/11 min
past 4.

Q 3 - The minute hand of a clock overtakes the hour hand at interval of 65 minutes of the correct time. How much a day does the clock gain or lose?

A - 10.20 minutes in 24 hours

B - 10.25 minutes in 24 hours

C - 10.23 minutes in 24 hours

D - None of these

Answer : C

Explanation

In a correct clock, the minute hand gains 55 min spaces
over the hour hand in 60 minutes.
To be together again, the minute hand must gain 60 minutes over the hour hand.

55 min are gained in 60 min
60 min are gained in (60/55)*60 = 720/11

But they are together after 65 min.
∴Gain in 65 min = (720/11 ? 65) = 5/11

Gain in 24 hours = [5/11 * (60*24)/65] min
= 440/43 min
= 10.23 minutes.

∴The clock gains 10.23 minutes in 24 hours.

Q 4 - A clock is set comfortable Am. The check picks up 10 minutes in 24 hours. What will be the genuine time when the clock shows 1 pm on the taking after?

A - 58 min. past. 12

B - 48 min. past. 12

C - 38 min. past. 12

D - 28 min. past. 12

Answer : B

Explanation

Time from 8 Am on a day to 1p.m on the accompanying day= 29 hrs.
24 hours 10 min. of this clock = 24 hrs. Of the right clock.
145/6 hrs. of this clock= 24 hrs of the right clock.
29 hrs. of this clock = (24*6/145*29)hrs of the right clock.
= 28 hrs 48 min. of right clock.
∴The right time is 28 hrs 48 min. after 8 am
This is 48 min. past. 12.

Q 5 - An exact check demonstrates 8 o'clock in the morning . through what number of degrees will the hour hand pivot when the clock indicates 2 O' check toward the evening?

A - 144°

B - 150°

C - 168°

D - 180°

Answer : D

Explanation

Angle followed by the hour hand in 6 hours
= (360/12*6)°= 180°

Q 6 - The point between the moment hand and the hour hand of a clock At the point when the time is 8.30, is:

A - 80°

B - 75°

C - 60°

D - 105°

Answer : B

Explanation

Angle followed by hour hand in 17/2hrs= (360/12*17/2)°= 255°
Point followed by min. hand in 30 min. = (360/60*30)°= 180°
∴ Required Angle = (255-180)°=75°

Q 7 - How commonly in a day, the clock's hands are straight?

A - 22

B - 24

C - 44

D - 48

Answer : C

Explanation

In 12 hours, the hands concur or are in inverse heading 22 times.
∴ In 24 hours, the hands concur or are
in inverse heading 44 Times each day.

Q 8 - How much does a watch lose every day, if its hands agree each 64 Min?

A - 360/11 min.

B - 401/11 min.

C - 90 min

D - 96 min.

Answer : B

Explanation

55 min. spaces are secured in 60 min.
60 min. spaces are secured in (60/55*60) min. = 720/11 min.
Misfortune in 64 min. = (720/11-64)= 16/11 min.
Misfortune in 24 hrs =(16/11*1/64 *24*60)min.=400/11 min.

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 - At what time somewhere around 4 and 5 o'clock will the hand of a watch point In inverse headings?

A - 45 min. past 4

B - 40 min. past 4

C - 554/11 min. past

D - 100/11 min. past 4

Answer : D

Explanation

At 4 o' clock, the watch's hands are 20 min. space Separated.
To be in inverse directions, they must be 30 min. space Separated.
∴ Minute hand will need to pick up 50 min. space.
55 min. space are picked up in 60 min.
50 min. space are picked up in (60/11*50) min. on the other hand 100/11 min.
∴ Required time=100/11 min. past 4.
