Q:

How many minutes does a watch lose per day, if its hands coincide every 64 minutes ?

A) 36 7/9 min B) 32 8/11 min
C) 34 3/11 min D) 65 5/11 min
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 32 8/11 min

Explanation:

55 min. spaces are covered in 60 min.

60 min. spaces are covered in open parentheses 60 over 55 cross times 60 close parentheses min. = 65 5 over 11 min.

Loss in 64 min. = open parentheses 65 5 over 11 minus 64 close parentheses equals 16 over 11 min.

Loss in 24 hrs = open parentheses 16 over 11 cross times 1 over 64 cross times 24 cross times 60 close parentheses min. = 32 8 over 11 min.

Q:

At what time, between 3 o’clock and 4 o’clock, both the hour hand and minute hand coincide each other  ? 

A) 3:16 7/11 B) 3:16 11/4
C) 3:30 D) 3:16 4/11
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 3:16 4/11

Explanation:

Coincide means 00  angle.

This can be calculated using the formulafor time A to B means  [11m/2 - 30 (A)]

Here m gives minutes after A the both hands coincides.

Here A = 3, B = 4

0 =11m/2 –30 × 3
11m = 90 × 2 = 180
m= 180/11 = 16 4/11

So time = 3 : 16 4/11

Q:

A watch gains 5 seconds in 3 minutes and was set right at 8 AM. What time will it show at 10 PM on the same day ?

A) 10 : 27 : 41 AM B) 8 : 51 : 04 AM
C) 9 : 45 : 15 PM D) 10 : 23 : 20 PM
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 10 : 23 : 20 PM

The watch gains 5 seconds in 3 minutes = 100 seconds in 1 hour.

From 8 AM to 10 PM on the same day, time passed is 14 hours.

In 14 hours, the watch would have gained 1400 seconds or 23 minutes 20 seconds.

So, when the correct time is 10 PM, the watch would show 10 : 23 : 20 PM
