Q:

Find at what time between 9 and 10 o’clock will the hands of a clock be in 180° ?

A) 180/14 min past 10 B) 180/11 min past 9
C) 148/7 min past 10 D) 154/11 min past 9
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 180/11 min past 9

Explanation:

At 9 o’clock, the hour hand is at 9 and the minutes hand is at 12, i.e., the two hands are 15 min. spaces apart.
So, the minute hand should gain = (30 - 15) minutes = 15 minutes
55 minutes will be gained in 60 min.
15 minutes spaces will be gained in ((60/55) x 15) min. = 180/11 min.
The hands will be in the same straight line but not together i.e.,in 180 degrees at 180/11 min. past 9.

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

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.
