Questions and Answers

Q 1 - Find the angle between the hour hand and the minute hand of a clock when the time is 3.25.

A - 30°

B - 50°

C - 95/2°

D - None of these

Answer : C

Explanation

Angle traced by the hour hand in 12 hours = 360°
Angle traced by it 3 hr 25 minutes i.e 41/12 hrs
= 360°/12 * 41/12 = 105°/2
Similarly, angle traced by min hand in 60 mins = 360°
Angle traced by it in 25 mins = 3600/60 * 25 = 150°

∴ Angle between hour hand and minute hand
= 150° ? 105°/2
= 95°/2

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 - 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, in moment, between 3 o'clock and 4 o'clock, both are unnecessary will match one another?

A - 56/11 past 3

B - 136/11 past 3

C - 147/11 past 3

D - 180/11 past 3

Answer : D

Explanation

At 3 o'clock ,the moment hand is 15 min. spaces a section
Structure the hour hand. To be coincident,
it must pick up 15 min. spaces.
55 min. are picked up in 60 min.
15 min. are picked up in (60/55*15)min.=180/11 min.
∴ The hands are correspondent at 180/11 min. past 3.

Q 10 - A watch picks up 5 sec. in 3 min. was set comfortable am. Toward the evening Of that day, when the watch demonstrated quarter past 4'o clock the Genuine time is:

A - 715/12 min. past 3

B - 4 p.m.

C - 645/11 min. past 3

D - 25/11 min. past 4

Answer : B

Explanation

Time structure 7 a.m. to 4.15 p.m.=9 hrs 15 min=37/4 hrs.
3 min. 5 sec. of this clock=3 min of the right clock.
=> 37/720hrs of this clock =1/2 hrs of the right clock
=> 37/4 hrs of this clock =(1/20*720/37*37/4)hrs of right clock
= 9hrs of the right clock
∴ The right time is 9 hrs after 7 a.m. i.e. 4 p.m.
