Solution:

The two hands of a clock will be in the same straight line but not together between HHand (H+1)(H+1) o' clock at Here H = 4. Hands of the watch will point in opposite directions at QUESTION: 7

A clock is set at 5 am. If the clock loses 16 minutes in 24 hours, what will be the true time when the clock indicates 10 pm on 4th day?

Solution:

Time from 5 am to 10 pm on the 4th day

Given that clock loses 16 minutes in 24 hours.  QUESTION: 8

The minute hand of a clock overtakes the hour hand at intervals of 65 minutes. How much a day does the clock gain or loss?

Solution:

If the minute hand of a clock overtakes the hour hand at intervals of MM minutes of correct time, the clock gains or loses in a day by Here M = 65. The clock gains or losses in a day by QUESTION: 9

Find the time between 4 and 5'o clock, when the two hands of a clock are 4 minutes apart?

Solution:

At 4 o' clock, the hands are 20 minute spaces apart.

To get the first 4 min spaces between the hands ,the minute hand has to gain 20 - 4 = 16 minute spaces over the hour hand.

To get the second 4 min spaces between the hands ,the minute hand has to gain 20 + 4 = 24 minute spaces over the hour hand.

In 60 minutes, minute hand gains 55 minute spaces over the hour hand.

Time taken for gaining 16 minute spaces by minute hand   QUESTION: 10

What is the angle between the hands at 4.40?

Solution:

Angle between hands of a clock

When the minute hand is behind the hour hand, the angle between the two hands at MM minutes past HH 'o clock When the minute hand is ahead of the hour hand, the angle between the two hands at MM minutes past HH 'o clock Here H = 4, M = 40 the minute hand is ahead of the hour hand.
