Q:

How many times in a day, are the hands of a clock in straight line but opposite in direction?

A) 20 B) 22
C) 24 D) 48

Q:

At 3.40, the hour hand and the minute hand of a clock form an angle of:

A) 120 degrees B) 125 degrees
C) 130 degrees D) 135 degrees
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 130 degrees

Explanation:

Angle traced by hour hand in 12 hrs. = 360º.

Angle traced by it in  {\color{Black} \frac{11}{3}} hrs=  {\color{Black} \left ( \frac{360}{12} \times \frac{11}{3}\right )^{o}}={\color{Black}110 ^{o}}

Angle traced by minute hand in 60 min. = 360º.

Angle traced by it in 40 min. ={\color{Black}\left ( \frac{360}{60} \times 40\right )^{o}}={\color{Black}240^{o}}

 {\color{Black} \therefore } Required angle (240 - 110)º = 130º.
