Answer : C

Explanation

$\left ( \frac{720}{11} - x \right ) \times\left ( \frac{60 \times 24}{x} \right )$ min

$\left ( \frac{720}{11} - 70 \right ) \times\left ( \frac{60 \times 24}{70} \right )$ min = -$\frac{7200}{77}$ min(loss)

Answer : A

Explanation

(5n ± x) × $\frac{12}{11}$ past n = (5 × 3 ± 4) × $\frac{12}{11}$ = 20 $\frac{8}{11}$ min past 3 and 12 min past 3
