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 - What should be the angle of the hands of a clock which are inclined at 40 min past 5?

40 min past 5 = 60 + $\frac{40}{5}$ = 68

Answer : B

Explanation

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

(5 × 11 ± 6) × $\frac{12}{11}$ = 66$\frac{5}{11}$ min past 11 and 53$\frac{5}{11}$ min past 11
