Q:

At what time between 2 and 3 o'clock will the hands of a clock be together?

A) (9 + 10/11) min past 2 B) (10 + 10/11) min past 2
C) (11 + 10/11) min past 2 D) (12 + 10/11) min past 2
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) (10 + 10/11) min past 2

Explanation:

At 2 o'clock, the hour hand is at 2 and the minute hand is at 12, i.e. they are 10 min spaces apart. 

 

To be together, the minute hand must gain 10 minutes over the hour hand. 

 

Now, 55 minutes are gained by it in 60 min.

 

  10 minutes will be gained in 6055×10 min. = 101011 min. 

 

The hands will coincide at 101011 min. past 2.

 The percentage increase in the area of a rectangle, if each of its sides is increased by 20%

A) 22% B) 33%
C) 44% D) 55%
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 44%

Explanation:

Let original length = x metres and original breadth = y metres.

Original area = xy sq.m 

Increased length  = 120100 and Increased breadth = 120100 

 

New area = 120100x*120100y=3625xy m2 

 

The difference between the Original area  and New area  is:  

3625xy-xy

 

1125xy Increase % =1125xyxy*100= 44%

A) 24min B) 12min
C) 13min D) 14min
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 24min

Explanation:

In this type of problems the formuae is
(5*x+ or - t)*12/11
Here x is replaced by the first interval of given time. Here x is 5.
t is spaces apart

  Case 1 : (5*x + t) * 12/11

 (5*5 + 3) * 12/11

 28 * 12/11 = 336/11= 31511 min

therefore the hands will be 3 min apart at 31 5/11 min past 5.

Case 2 : (5*x - t) * 12/11

(5*5 -3 ) * 12/11

 22 *12/11 = 24 min 

 therefore the hands will be 3 min apart at 24 min past 5
