Answers

  1. (a)
  2. (c)
  3. (c)
  4. (a) Angle covered by hour hand in 12 hours = 360 degrees

Angle covered by hour hand in 3 hours 15 minutes i.e. 13/4 hours = [(360/12 * (13/4)]

= (195/2)o

  1. (b)

(360/12) * 7 = 210o

  1. (b)

Angle traced by hour hand at 10 pm = (360/12) * 10 = 300o

Angle traced by minute hand in 15 min = (360/60) * 15 = 90o

Required angle = 210o

  1. (b)

Angle traced by hour hand at 2:30 pm = (360/12) * (5/2) = 75o

Angle traced by minute hand in 30 min = (360/60) * 30 = 180o

Required angle = 105 degrees

  1. (a)
  2. (b)

(360/12)* 6 = 180o

  1. (d)

Angle traced by hour hand at 7 pm = (360/12) * 7 = 210o

Angle traced by minute hand in 20 min = (360/60) * 20 = 120o

Required angle = 90o
