Question 5.

An accurate clock shows 8 oclock in the morning. Through how may degrees will the hour hand rotate when the clock shows 2 oclock in the afternoon?

Options:
1.    144º
2.    150º
3.    168º
4.    180º
Answer: Option D

Angle traced by the hour hand in 6 hours = $$\left(\frac{360}{12}\times6\right)^{0} = 180^{0}$$

Question 6.

The reflex angle between the hands of a clock at 10.25 is:

Options:
1.    180º
2.    $$192\frac{1}{2}^{0}$$
3.    195º
4.    $$197\frac{1}{2}^{0}$$
Answer: Option D

Angle traced by hour hand in  $$\frac{125}{12}$$  hrs =$$\left(\frac{360}{12}\times\frac{125}{12}\right)^{0}= 312\frac{1}{2}^{0}$$

Angle traced by minute hand in 25 min = $$\left(\frac{360}{50}\times25\right)^{0}=150^{0}$$

So, Reflex angle = 360º – $$\left( 312\frac{1}{2}^{0}-150\right)^{0}=360^{0}-162\frac{1}{2}^{0}=197\frac{1}{2}^{0}$$
