A) 54 past 4 | B) (53 + 7/11) past 4 |

C) (54 + 8/11) past 4 | D) (54 + 6/11) past 4 |

Explanation:

4 o'clock, the hands of the watch are 20 min. spaces apart.

To be in opposite directions, they must be 30 min. spaces apart.

Minute hand will have to gain 50 min. spaces.

55 min. spaces are gained in 60 min

50 min. spaces are gained in min. or

Required time = min. past 4.

A) 16 deg | B) 80 deg |

C) 88 deg | D) 94 deg |

Explanation:

In one hour, the minute hand gains 330° over the hour hand. i.e., 60 minute, the minute hand gains 330° over the hour hand.

∴ In 16 minutes, the minute hand gain over the hour hand by

A) 66 sec | B) 55 sec |

C) 36 sec | D) 24 sec |

Explanation:

For ticking 6 times, there are 5 intervals.

Each interval has time duration of 30/5 = 6 secs

At 12 o'clock, there are 11 intervals,

so total time for 11 intervals = 11 x 6 = 66 secs.

A) 3:15 2/8 | B) 3:49 |

C) 3:49 1/11 | D) 3:51 |

Explanation:

On straight line means 180 degree angle.

180 = 11/2 min – 30 hrs

180 = 11/2 m – 30 × 3

180 = 11/2 m – 90

(180 + 90) 2 = 11 m

m = 540/11 = 49 1/11 minutes.

A) 12 p.m. on Wednesday | B) 2 p.m. on Thursday |

C) 3 p.m. on Thursday | D) 2 p.m. on Wednesday |

Explanation:

Time from 12 p.m. on Tuesday to 2 p.m. on the following Tuesday = 7 days 2 hours.

= 170 hours.

The watch gains = (2 + 4 x 4/5) min

= 34/5 min. in 170 hrs.

Now, 34/5 min are gained in 170 hrs.

Then, 2 min are gained in (170 x 5/34 x 2) hrs.

Watch is correct after 2 days 2 hrs after 12 p.m. on Tuesday, i.e., it will be correct at 2 p.m. on Thursday.

A) Option A | B) Option B |

C) Option C | D) Option D |

Explanation:

At 3 o'clock, the minute hand is 15 min. spaces apart from the hour hand.

To be coincident, it must gain 15 min. spaces.

55 min. are gained in 60 min.

Then 15 min spaces are gained in = min.

The hands are coincident at min. past 3 o'clock.
