Q:

A clock is started at 11 a.m. By 600 seconds past 6 p.m, the hour hand has turned through ?

A) 155 degrees B) 175 degrees
C) 205 degrees D) 215 degrees
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 215 degrees

Explanation:

The total angle traced by the hour hand is the angle traced in 7 hours and 10 minutes.
We know that the angle traced by the hour hand in one hour is 30º and in one minute is 1/2º.
Therefore, (30º x 7) + (10 x 1/2º) = 215º is the angle traced by the hour hand.
