A time of a clock is set 3.40. Find out the angle that is formed by both hour hand and minute hand:**(A)** 120 degrees

**(B)** 135 degrees

**(C)** 140 degrees**(D)** 130 degrees**Answer:** **(D)****Explanation:** 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 .
