# Puzzles Questions

A) 20 | B) 22 |

C) 24 | D) 48 |

Explanation:

The hands of a clock point in opposite directions (in the same straight line) 11 times in every 12 hours. (Because between 5 and 7 they point in opposite directions at 6 o'clcok only).

So, in a day, the hands point in the opposite directions 22 times.

A) 145 | B) 150 |

C) 155 | D) 160 |

Explanation:

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

Angle traced by hour hand in 5 hrs 10 min. *i.e., 31/6 hrs *= ${\left(\frac{360}{12}*\frac{31}{6}\right)}^{\xb0}$= 155º

A) 2 p.m. on Tuesday | B) 2 p.m. on Wednesday |

C) 3 p.m. on Thursday | D) 1 p.m. on Friday |

Explanation:

Time from 12 p.m. on Monday to 2 p.m. on the following Monday = 7 days 2 hours = 170 hours.

The Watch gains $\left(2+4\frac{4}{5}\right)$ min. or $\frac{34}{5}$ min.in 170 hrs.

Now, $\frac{34}{5}$min.are gained in 170 hrs.

2 min.are gained in$\left(170*\frac{5}{34}*2\right)$ hrs=50 hrs

Watch is correct 2 days 2 hrs. after 12 p.m. on Monday *i.e.,* it will be correct at 2 p.m. on Wednesday

A) 120 degrees | B) 125 degrees |

C) 130 degrees | D) 135 degrees |

Explanation:

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

Angle traced by it in 11/3 hrs= ${\left(\frac{360}{12}*\frac{11}{3}\right)}^{\xb0}$=${110}^{\xb0}$

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

Angle traced by it in 40 min. =(360/60*40)${\xb0}^{}$=240${\xb0}^{}$

Required angle (240 - 110)º = 130º.

A) 90 | B) 56 |

C) 34 | D) 104 |

Explanation:

As you move down, the numbers represent multiples of 12,subtracting 1 for the first step,adding 2 for the second, subtracting 3 for the third, adding 4 for the next ect.ect

A) 3 | B) 4 |

C) 1 | D) 2 |
