Q 3 - What is the angle between minute hand and the hour hand of a clock when time is 4.20?

A - 0o

B - 10o

C - 5o

D - 20o

Answer : B

Explanation

Angle traced by hour hand in 13/3 hrs = ( $\frac{360}{12}$ × $\frac{13}{3}$) = 130o

Angle traced by min hand in 20 min = $\frac{360}{12}$ × 20 = 120o

Therefore required angle = 130 - 120 = 10o

Answer : C

Explanation

(5n ± x) × $\frac{12}{11}$ min past n.

= (5 × 5 ± 6) × $\frac{12}{11}$ min past 5

= 33$\frac{9}{11}$ min past 5 and 19$\frac{12}{11}$ min past 5

Q 5 - What is the value of angle covered by minute the hand in one minute?

A - 5o

B - 6o

C - 7o

D - 8o

Q 6 - At what time between 4 and 3 O`clock will the hands of a clock point in opposite direction?

A - $\frac{549}{11}$ min past 4

B - 601 min past 4

C - $\frac{600}{11}$ min past 4

D - 602 min past 4

Answer : C

Explanation

(5n + 30 )×$\frac{12}{11}$, n = 4

$\frac{50 \times 12}{11}$ min. past 4 = $\frac{600}{11}$

Q 7 - At what time between 7 and 8 O`clock will the hands of a clock be in opposite direction?

A - 20$\frac{10}{11}$ minute past 7

B - 30$\frac{10}{11}$ minute past 7

C - 10$\frac{10}{11}$ minute past 7

D - 15$\frac{10}{11}$ minute past 7

Answer : C

Explanation

Clock Hands Opposite Direction

From the figure it is clear that the minute hand has to gain 10 minute space in order to be in opposite of hour hand, therefore 10 minute space can be gained in $\frac{60}{55}$ × 10 = 10$\frac{10}{11}$

Q 8 - Ram takes 15 minutes to reach Madhu`s house, by walking. while he takes only 8 min to reach Madhu`s house by driving a vehicle. What is the difference of separation of time?

A - 55$\frac{8}{17}$ min

B - 56$\frac{8}{17}$ min

C - 56$\frac{7}{17}$ min

D - 58$\frac{7}{17}$ min

Answer : B

Explanation

($\frac{720}{11}$ - x) × ($\frac{60 \times 24}{x}$) min; here x = 63 so, option (b) is correct
