Q:

The reflex angle between the hands of a clock at 11:35 is ?

A) 137.5 degrees B) 222.5 degrees
C) 192.5 degrees D) 330 degrees
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 222.5 degrees

Explanation:

Apply the formula for finding the angle:
Angle=(30h-(11/2)m( where m stands for minutes and h stands for hours)
Hence, 30x11 - 11/2x35 = 330 - 192.5 = 137.5 degrees
The reflex angle = 360 - 192.5 degree = 222.5 degrees.

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.

Q:

1 Billion Seconds Equals to

A) 34.76 years B) 32.48 years
C) 33.31 years D) 31.68 years
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 31.68 years

Explanation:

We know that 1 year = 365.25 days

1 day = 24 hours

1 hour = 60 minutes

1 minute = 60 seconds

 

=> 1 Year = 365.25 x 24 x 60 x 60 Seconds

But 1 billion seconds = ?

1 Year = 365.25 x 24 x 60 x 60 Seconds

    ?     =  1000000000 Seconds

 

? = 1000000000365.25 x 24 x 60 x 60 years = 31. 68 years.
