In a clock, the time is 3.25.What is the angle between the hour hand and the minute hand of the clock:
(A) 95/2 degrees
(B) 90/3 degrees
(C) 94/3 degrees
(D) 95/3 degrees


Answer: (A)

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.
