Questions and Answers

Q 1 - At what angle the hands of a clock are inclined at 15 minute past 5?

A - 72$\frac{1}{2}^{\circ}$

B - 67$\frac{1}{2}^{\circ}$

C - 58$\frac{1}{2}^{\circ}$

D - 64o

Answer : B

Explanation

Angle 15 minute past 5 = 60 + 7$\frac{1}{2}$ = 67$\frac{1}{2}^{\circ}$

Answer : B

Explanation

It is clear that to coincide together the minute hand has to travel through 30 minute space.

Therefore required time = 30 × $\frac{60}{55}$ = 32$\frac{8}{11}$ minute past 6

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

Q 4 - A clock shows 9 O`clock in the morning through how many degrees will the hour hand rotate when the clock shows 3 O`clock in the afternoon?

A - 120o

B - 60o

C - 180o

D - 360o

Answer : C

Explanation

It’s a straight line path so its 180o

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

A - 5o

B - 6o

C - 7o

D - 8o

Answer : B

Explanation

$\frac{360}{60}$ = 6o

Minute Hand Angle

Q 6 - In which time between 9 and 10 O`clock, the hands of a clock will look like a straight line?

A - $\frac{180}{11}$

B - $\frac{210}{11}$

C - $\frac{90}{11}$

D - $\frac{270}{11}$

Answer : A

Straight Line

Explanation

$\frac{60}{55}$ × 15 = $\frac{180}{11}$

Q 7 - What should be the time difference from 4.20 am to 7 .30 pm on the Sunday?

A - 15.00 hours

B - 15 hours 20 minutes

C - 15 hours 05 minutes

D - 15 hours 10 minutes

Answer : D

Explanation

7.30 – 4.20 = 3.10

12 + 3.10 = 15. 10

Answer : C

Explanation

$\frac{360}{12} \times \frac{117}{12} = 292\frac{5}{12}$

$\frac{360}{60}$ × 45 = 270

Reflex angle = 360- (292$\frac{5}{12}$ - 270) = 337$\frac{5}{12}$

Q 9 - What time between 3 and 4 O` clock will the hands of a clock be together?

A - 18 minutes past 3

B - 15 minutes past 3

C - 16 minutes past 3

D - 20 minutes past 3

Answer : B

Explanation

We know that that minute hand gains 15 minute in 60 minute rotation, therefore, 15 minute can be gained in 15 minutes past 3

Hands Together

Q 10 - At what time between 3 O`clock and 4 O`clock will the hands of a clock be in opposite direction?

A - 49$\frac{1}{11}$ min past 3

B - 50$\frac{1}{11}$ min past 3

C - 48$\frac{1}{11}$ min past 3

D - 47$\frac{1}{11}$ min past 3

Answer : A

Explanation

$\frac{\left ( 5n + 30 \right ) \times 12}{11}$ (n>6) min past n

So 49$\frac{1}{11}$ min past 3 is correct.
