Total minutes between 3o'clock and 6o' clock = 180 minutes

5M = 130
M = 26 minutes.

Q:

The reflex angle between the hands of a clock at 11:35 is ?

A) 137.5 degrees B) 222.5 degrees
C) 192.5 degrees D) 330 degrees
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 222.5 degrees

Explanation:

Apply the formula for finding the angle:
Angle=(30h-(11/2)m( where m stands for minutes and h stands for hours)
Hence, 30x11 - 11/2x35 = 330 - 192.5 = 137.5 degrees
The reflex angle = 360 - 192.5 degree = 222.5 degrees.

Q:

There is a clock which shows false timing ie it shows 20 minutes less for each 1 hour. If the clock shows 12 noon now how many minutes will be lost when it shows 2 pm ?

A) 36 minutes B) 48 minutes
C) 35 minutes D) 60 minutes
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 60 minutes

Explanation:

For 1 hour, 20 minutes is slower, then for
06 miuntes - 2 minutes is slower
30 minutes - 10 minutes
Actual time | false time
12 12
01 PM 12:40 PM (20 minutes slower)
02 PM 01:20 PM
03 PM 02:00 PM

So, when actual time is 3pm, the false time is 2 pm.
So, it loses 60 minutes when it shows 2 pm.

Q:

At what time between 2 and 3 O'clock, the hands of a clock coincide ?

A) 1 10/11 minutes past 2 B) 1 10/11 minutes past 3
C) 1 11/10 minutes past 3 D) 11 10/11 minutes past 2
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1 10/11 minutes past 2

Explanation:

Since, in one hour, two hands of a clock coincide only once, so, there will be value.
Required time  minutes past H.
Here H - initial position of hour hand = 2 (since 2 O'clock)
A° = Required angle = 0° (Since it coincides)

 minutes past 2 

=>  minutes past 2

Q:

A clock is started at 11 a.m. By 600 seconds past 6 p.m, the hour hand has turned through ?

A) 155 degrees B) 175 degrees
C) 205 degrees D) 215 degrees
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 215 degrees

Explanation:

The total angle traced by the hour hand is the angle traced in 7 hours and 10 minutes.
We know that the angle traced by the hour hand in one hour is 30º and in one minute is 1/2º.
Therefore, (30º x 7) + (10 x 1/2º) = 215º is the angle traced by the hour hand.
