 Question 1
In a clock, the time is 3.25.What is the angle between the hour hand and the minute hand of the clock:
 95/2 degrees 90/3 degrees 94/3 degrees 95/3 degrees

Question 1-Explanation:
As, the hour hand covers 360 degrees in 12 hrs. In the clock the time is 3.25 = 3 hrs 25 min = 41/12 hrs. So, the angle traced by hour hand = (360/12 x 41/12) degrees = 205 degrees. The minute hand covers 360 degrees in 60 minutes. So, the angle is traced by minute hand in 25 min = (360/60 x 25) degrees = 150 degrees. Hence, the required angle of the clock = (150- 205/2) degrees = 95/2 degrees.
 Question 2

What is correct time and day of Ram's magical watch, which gains uniformly 300 seconds slow at time 08:00 on Sunday and 348 fast at 20;00 on following Sunday.

 21 min past 7 pm and Wednesday 20 min past 7 pm and Thursday 21 min past 7 pm and Thursday 20 min past 7 pm and Wednesday

Question 2-Explanation:

The given time from 8:00 am on Sunday to 8 pm on following Sunday = 7 days 12 hrs = 180 hrs. So, the clock gains = (5 + 29/5)min = 54/5 min in 180 hrs. Hence, 5 min are gained in (180 x 5/54 x 5)hrs = 83 hrs 20 min = 3 days 11 hrs 20 min. The clock is correct 3 days 11 hrs 20 min after 8 am of Sunday. So, the correct time and day will be 20 min past 7 pm on Wednesday.

 Question 3

On the birthday of Sam, Param gave him an alarm clock, now Sam sets alarm at 5 am, and  Sam notices that:

• The clock loses 960 seconds in last one day.
•  Effectively, the clock indicates 10:00 pm on the 4th day.

Find out the original time of the clock:

 9 pm 10 pm 11 pm 08 pm

Question 3-Explanation:

From the given information the time from 5 am on a day to 10 pm on the 4th day is 89 hrs. So, 23 hrs 44 min of this clock = 24 hrs of correct clock. Hence, 356/15 hrs of this clock = 24 hrs of correct clock. 89 hrs of the clock = (24 x 15/356 x 89)hrs of correct clock = 90 hrs of correct clock. Hence, the original time will be 11 pm.

 Question 4

Find the original time of clock if:

• The time of a clock is 08:00,
• The clock gains 600 seconds, in one day.
• The time of the clock is 1pm on the following day.
 48 minutes past 12 47 minutes past 10 48 minutes past 11 48 minutes past 11

Question 4-Explanation:

From 8 am on a day to 1 pm on the following day will be 29 hrs. So, the clock gains 10 min in 24 hours = 24 hrs of the correct time. Hence, 145/6 hrs of the clock = 24 hrs of the correct clock. 29 hrs of the clock = (24 x 6/145 x 24)hrs of the correct clock = 28 hrs 48 min of the correct clock. The correct time = 28 hrs 48 min after 8 am. Hence, the original time is 48 minutes past 12.

 Question 5

At the time of 15:40 in clock, what is the angle between hour hand and minute hand.

 120 degrees 135 degrees 140 degrees 130 degrees

Question 5-Explanation:

The time is same as 03:40

The hour hand covers the angle 360 degrees in 12 hrs. So, the angle is covered by it in 11/3 hrs = (360/2 x 11/3) degrees = 110 degrees . The minute hand covers the angle in 360 degrees in 60 min. So, the angle is covered by it in 40 min = (360/60 x 40) degrees = 240 degrees . Hence, the required angle made by both hands = (240 - 110) degrees = 130 degrees .

 Question 6

A clock shows 08:00. When it is 14:00, by what degree the hour hand rotates?

 145º 160º 180º 175º

Question 6-Explanation:

For 6 hrs duration hrs hand covered 6 hrs out of 12 hrs
When hrs hand covers 12 hrs it rotates for 360 degree
----------------------------6 --------------------- = (360/12)*6 = 180 degrees

 Question 7

A clock shows 10:00. When time is 16:00, by what degree the hour hand rotates?

 140º 152º 175º 180º

Question 7-Explanation:

For 6 hrs duration hrs hand covered 6 hrs out of 12 hrs When hrs hand covers 12 hrs it rotates for 360 degree ----------------------------6 --------------------- = 360/12)*6 = 180 degrees

 Question 8

A clock shows 10:00. When time is 22:00, by what degree the hour hand rotates?

 180 175 240 360

Question 8-Explanation:

For 6 hrs duration hrs hand covered 12 hrs out of 12 hrs When hrs hand covers 12 hrs it rotates for 360 degree ----------------------------12 --------------------- =(360/12)*12 = 360 degrees

 Question 9

A clock shows 10:00 AM. What time it will be showing, if hrs hand rotates for 180 degrees?

 1:00 PM 6:00 PM 4:00 PM 10:00 PM

Question 9-Explanation:

When hrs hand rotates for 360 degree it covers 12 hrs --------------------------------- 180 --------------------- 6 hrs So the time will be: 10:00 AM + 6 hrs = 4:00 PM

 Question 10

A clock shows 06:00 AM. What time it will be showing, if hrs hand rotates for 360 degrees?

 4:00 AM of next day 06:00 PM 04:00 PM 10:00 PM

Question 10-Explanation:

When hrs hand rotates for 360 degree it covers 12 hrs --------------------------------- 360 --------------------- 12 hrs So the time will be: 06:00 AM + 12 hrs = 06:00 PM
