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

Explanation:

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

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

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

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

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