In 24 hours, the hands coincide or are in opposite direction 44 times a day.3 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsAt what time between 4 o’clock and 5 O’ clock will the hands of a clock coincide? 20minutes past 4 21minutes past 4 19minutes past 4 22minutes past 4 Explanation:At 4 O’ clock, the minute hand is 20 minute spaces behind the hour hand. To coincide with the hour hand, it has to gain 20 minute spaces.Now, 55 minute spaces are gained by the minute hand in 60 minutes20 minutes will be gained in ∴ The hands will coincide at 21 minutes past 4.Solution 2:Apply formula: minutes past H O’ clockNow, H = 4 O’ clock∴Required time =4 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsA watch which gains uniformly is 5 minutes slow at 6am on Monday and is 5 minutes 48 seconds fast at 6pm on the following Monday. When was it correct? 5:20 pm on Wednesday 4:20 pm on Wednesday 5:20 pm on Thursday 4:20 pm on Thursday Explanation:Time from 6am on Monday to 6pm on following Monday = 7 days and 12 hours, i.e. 24*7 + 12 = 180 hoursSo, the watch gains minutes in 180 hoursNow, minutes are gained in 180 hours∴ 5 minutes will be gained in hours or 83 hours 20 minutes.83 hour 20 minutes = 3 days (72 hours) 11 hours 20 minutesTherefore, the watch was correct 3 days 11 hours 20 minutes after 6am on Monday, i.e. it was correct at 20 minutes past 5pm on Thursday.5 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsAt what time between 4:30 and 5:00 will the hands of a clock be at right angle? 35min. past 4 37min. past 4 38min. past 4 39min. past 4 Explanation:As we know, the hands of a clock will be at 90° between H: 30 and (H+1) O’clock at (5H + 15) minutes past H O’ clock.∴ Required time = (5H + 15) Now, H = 4= (5*4 + 15) = 20 + 15 * 6 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsHow many times do the hands of a clock coincide in a day? 20 22 24 25 Explanation:The hands of a clock coincide 11 times in every 12 hours (Since between 11 and 1, they coincide only once, i.e., at 12 o'clock).AM12:001:052:113:164:225:276:337:388:449:4910:55PM12:001:052:113:164:225:276:337:388:449:4910:55The hands overlap about every 65 minutes, not every 60 minutes. The hands coincide 22 times in a day7 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsA clock is set at 4am. It loses 16 minutes in 24 hours. What will be the correct time when the clock indicates 9pm on the 4th day? 10pm 9pm 8pm 11pm Explanation:Time from 4am on a day to 9pm on the 4th day = 89 hoursAs per the question, 23 hrs 44 minutes of this clock = 24 hours of the correct clock as this clock loses 16 minutes in 24 hours.23 hrs 44 minutes =Now, Hrs of this clock = 24 hours of correct clock89 hours of this clock = * 89 = 90 hours of the correct clock, i.e. the correct clock gains one hour over the incorrect clock.∴The correct time on the fourth day would be 10pm.8 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsAt what time between 9 and 10 o'clock will the hands of a watch be together? 49(1//11) min. past 9 45 min. past 9 50 min. past 9 48(2//11) min. past 9 Explanation:To be together between 9 and 10 o'clock, the minute hand has to gain 45 min. spaces.55 min. spaces gained in 60 min.45 min. spaces are gained in60x 45min or 491min.5511 The hands are together at 491min. past 9.119 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsHow many times are the hands of a clock at right angle in a day? 24 48 22 44 Explanation:In 12 hours, they are at right angles 22 times.

To be in straight line and in opposite directions, the hands must be 30 minutes spaces apart.Now, the minute hand is 15 minute spaces behind the hour hand, so it has to gain 45 (15+30) minute spaces over the hour hand.55 minute spaces are gained in 60 minutes by the minute hand45 minutes will be gained in =* 45 minutes minutes past 3.Solution 2:Apply formula: (5H + 30) minutes past H, when H < 6As per the question, H = 3 O’ clockRequired time = (5*3 + 30) =(15+30) =45 *12 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsWhat is the angle between hour hand and minute hand of a clock at 3.30? 75° 80° 70° 65° Explanation:Angle traced by the hour hand in 12 hours = 360°Angle traced by the hour hand in 3 hours 30 minutes =Angle traced by minute hand in 60 minutes = 360°Angel traced by minute hand in 30 minutes = ∴ Required angle would be = (180 – 105)° = 75°13 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsAt what time between 4 and 5 o'clock will the hands of a watch point in opposite directions? 45 min. past 4 40 min. past 4 54(6/11) min. past 4 50(4/11) min. past 4 At 4 o'clock, the hands of the watch are 20 min. spaces apart.To be in opposite directions, they must be 30 min. spaces apart. Minute hand will have to gain 50 min. spaces.55 min. spaces are gained in 60 min.50 min. spaces are gained in60x 50min. or 546min.5511 Required time = 546min. past 4.1114 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsAn accurate clock shows 8 o'clock in the morning. Through how may degrees will the hour hand rotate when the clock shows 2 o'clock in the afternoon? 144° 120° 180° 150° Explanation:Angle traced by the hour hand in 6 hours =360x 6°= 180°.1215 / 15 Category: Clock QuestionsAt what time, in minutes, between 3 o'clock and 4 o'clock, both the needles will coincide each other? 12(4/11)" 5(1/11)" 16(4/11)" 13(4/11)" Explanation:At 3 o'clock, the minute hand is 15 min. spaces apart from the hour hand.To be coincident, it must gain 15 min. spaces.55 min. are gained in 60 min.15 min. are gained in60x 15min=164min.5511 The hands are coincident at 164min. past 3.11 NameEmail Your score isThe average score is 46% LinkedIn Facebook Twitter VKontakte 0% Restart quiz Exit Satisfied with our quiz?Leave us a review Send feedback Pages: 1 2 3 4 Share on: Share this content Opens in a new window Opens in a new window Opens in a new window Opens in a new window You Might Also Like Line Chart Quizzes March 30, 2020 Boat and Stream Quizzes March 26, 2020 Percentage Quizzes March 26, 2020Leave a Reply Cancel replyCommentEnter your name or username to commentEnter your email address to commentEnter your website URL (optional) Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
