B. 44

C. 24

D. 48

Correct Answer: **B. 44 **

It has not been mentioned coinciding or opposite of each other. So, we have to consider a common scenario where the hands are in a straight line that is either opposite or coincides with each other.

A. 20

B. 22

C. 24

D. 48

Correct Answer: **B. 22 **

A. Wednesday noon

B. Sunday 2 PM

C. Monday noon

D. Tuesday 2 PM

Correct Answer: **D. Tuesday 2 PM **

At noon on Sunday watch gains 2 Minutes.

And at 2 PM on following Sunday it is 4 Minutes 48 Seconds fast.

So, it gains 6 Minutes 48 Seconds i.e. 2 Minutes + 4 Minutes 48 Seconds (total 408 Seconds) in 170 Hours (Hours from Sunday Noon (12 PM) to following Sunday 2 PM)

Therefore, watch gains 120 Seconds (2 Minutes) in 170*120/408 = 50 Hours

50 Hours = 2 Days 2 Hours

Thus, Watch was correct after 2 days 2 hours from Sunday noon that is Tuesday 2 PM.

A. 11 AM on Sunday

B. 11 AM on Monday

C. 11 AM on Tuesday

D. 11 AM on Wednesday

Correct Answer: **A. 11 AM on Sunday **

As mentioned in Key Point O, the faulty clock will show the correct time when it loses or gains 12 Hours.

In the given problem, the clock loses 5 Minutes in an hour. So, 1 Minute lost in every 12 minutes (60 minutes / 5 minutes = 12 minutes).

Now, for losing 12 hours i.e. 720 Minutes(12 X 60 = 720) it will take 720 X 12 = 8640 Minutes = 144 Hours = 6 Days.

So, Clock will show correct time after 6 days from 11 AM Monday.

Thus, Answer is 11 AM on Sunday.

A. 11:08

B. 12:38

C. 11:38

D. 12:08

Correct Answer: **C. 11:38 **

8 Seconds in 4 Minutes mean 120 Seconds (or 2 Minutes) in one hour.

From 4AM to 11PM (on the same day) = 19 hours

So, total seconds gain in 19 hours = 19 X 120 (Seconds gain per hour) = 2280 Seconds.

Now, 2280 Seconds = 38 Minutes (i.e. 2280/19 = 38)

Thus incorrect clock will show 11:38PM at 11PM.

A. 10:50

B. 11:50

C. 12:50

D. 1:50

Correct Answer: **B. 11:50 **

A. 1:25

B. 12:35

C. 1:35

D. 12:25

Correct Answer: **B. 12:35 **

Shortcut is to subtract the given time from 11:60 (As mentioned in key Point N). Thus the correct time is 11:60 – 11:25 = 0:35 and 0:35 mean 12:35 So, Answer is 12:35.
