Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 1

Angle traced by hour hand in 125/12 hrs =
Angle traced by minute hand in 25 min =
∴ Reflex angle = 3600

Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 2

### Q. How many times in a day, the hands of a clock are straight?

Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 2

In 12 hours, the hands coincide or are in opposite direction 22 times.

### A clock is started at noom. By 10 mimutes past 5, the hour hand has turned through:

Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 3

Angle traced by hour hand in 12 hrs = 360º.
Angle traced by hour hand in 5 hrs 10 min. i.e., 31/6 hrs
= (360/12)*(31/6)°
= 155º

Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 4

At what time between 5.30 and 6 will the hands of a clock be at right angles?

Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 4

At 5 o'clock, the hands are 25 min. spaces apart.
To be at right angles and that too between 5.30 and 6, the minute hand has to gain (25 + 15) = 40 min. spaces.
55 min. spaces are gained in 60 min.
40 min. spaces are gained in
∴ Required time =  min. past 5.

Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 5

A watch which gains 5 seconds in 3 minutes was set right at 7 a.m. In the afternoon of the same day, when the watch indicated quarter past 4 o'clock, the true time is:

Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 5

Time from 7 a.m. to 4.15 p.m. = 9 hours 15 min = 37/4 hours
3 min 5 sec of this clock = 3 min. of the correct clock.
⇒ 37/720 hours of this clock = 1/20 hours of the correct clock
⇒ 37 hours of this clock = (1/20 x 720/37 x 37/4) hours of the correct clock.
= 9 hours of the correct clock.
∴ The correct time is 9 hours after 7 a.m. i.e., 4 p.m

Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 6

A watch which gains uniformly is 2 minutes low at noon on Monday and is 4 min. 48 sec fast at 2 p.m. on the following Monday. When was it correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 6

Time from 12 p.m. on Monday to 2 p.m. on the following Monday = 7 days 2 hours = 170 hours.
∴ The watch gains  in 170 hrs.
Now, 34/5 min. are gained in 170 hrs.
∴ 2 min. are gained in
Watch is correct 2 days 2 hrs. after 12 p.m. on Monday i.e., it will be correct at 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 7

At what time between 7 and 8 o'clock will the hands of a clock be in the same straight line but, not together?

Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 7

When the hands of the clock are in the same straight line but not together, they are 30 minute spaces apart.
At 7 o'clock, they are 25 min. spaces apart.
Minute hand will have to gain only 5 min. spaces.
55 min. spaces are gained in 60 min.
5 min. spaces are gained in
∴ Required time =  min. past 7.

Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 8

At what angle the hands of a clock are inclined at 15 minutes past 5?

Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 8

15 past 5 means quarter past 5 = (5:15)
⇒ (11*15 - 60*5)/2 = 67.5

Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 9

A watch which gains uniformly is 2 minutes low at noon on Monday and is 4 min. 48 sec fast at 2 p.m. on the following Monday. When was it correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 9

Time from Monday noon (12 o' clock) to following Monday 2 pm = 7 day 2 hours
= 7×24+2
= 168+2
= 170 hours
Total time gained Monday noon (12 o' clock) to following Monday 2 pm = 2 min + 4 min 48 sec

The given watch gains 34/5 mins in 170 hours
Given that the said watch was 2 minutes low at Monday noon. Hence when it gained 2 minutes, the time was correct.
The given watch gains 34/5 mins in 170 hours
⇒ The given watch gains 2 mins in
= 5 * 5 * 2 hours = 50 hours
Hence the time was correct after 50 hours from Monday noon = after 2 days 2 hours from Monday noon = 2 pm on Wednesday

Detailed Solution for Test: Clocks- 1 - Question 10

The angle between hour and minute hand in 4:20 is 10 degrees.
For a minute, the hour hand rotates by 30/60 = 1/2 degrees.
hence, for 20 minutes it rotates by an angle of 20*1/2 = 10 degrees.
