1) 5 seconds          2) 10 seconds          3) 12 seconds            4) 15 seconds

11. A clock is set to show the correct time at 6 a.m. The clock gains 12 minutes in a day. What will be the approximate time shown by this clock when the actual time on the next day is 8 p.m.?
1) 7 h. 40 min.         2) 8 h. 19 min.            3) 7 h. 41 min.          4) 8 h. 21 min.

EXPLANATIONS

1. Total number of hours between 8 a.m. today to 8 p.m. the next day is 36 hours. The clock gains 12 min. in 24 hours, in 36 hours it gains 18 min. After gaining 18 min the clock shows 8 p.m. Hence the actual time is 18 min less than 8 p.m. i.e. 7 hours 42 min.

2. In one hour the difference between the two clocks is 2 mins. Total number of hours from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on the same day is 13 hrs. In 13 hrs. the difference will be 13 × 2 = 26 minutes.

3. In one hour the difference between the two clocks is 3 mins. The clock which is gaining one minute is showing 10 : 14 p.m. means the clock gained 14 minutes in 14 hrs. (i.e. 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.). In these 14 hrs. the second clock loses 14 × 2 = 28 mins. The second clock shows 28 mins to 10 p.m. i.e. 9 hrs. 32 min.

4. Total number of hours from 6 a.m. today to 9 p.m. the next day is 39 hrs. During these 39 hrs. the clock gained 30 minutes. If the clock gains 10 min. then it will show the correct time. To gain 10 min it takes
10/30 × 39 = 13 h.
After 13 hrs. to 6 a.m. today i.e. 7 p.m. today the clock shows the correct time.

5. Total number of hours from 8 a.m. on Sunday to 4 p.m. the subsequent Tuesday is 56 hrs. In these 56 hrs. the clock gains 40 min (− 15 to + 25). If it gains 15 mins then it shows the correct time. To gain 15 minutes it takes 15/40 × 56 = 21 hrs.
After 21 hrs. to 8 a.m. Sunday i.e. 5 a.m. on Monday the clock shows the correct time.

6. Total number of hours from 10 a.m. on Monday to 6 p.m. Tuesday is 32 hrs. In these 32 hrs. the clock looses 40 mins. (+ 15 to − 25). If it looses 15 mins. then it show the correct time. To loose 15 mins. it 15 takes 15/40 × 32 = 12 hrs. After 12 hrs to 10 a.m.
on Monday i.e. 10 p.m. on Monday it shows the correct time.

7. Actual time and mirror time is always equals to 12 hrs.
Mirror time = 12 - (Actual time)
12 − 7 hrs. 35 min. = 4 hrs. 25 mins.

8. Actual time and mirror time is always equals to 12 hrs.
Actual time = 12 − (mirror time)
12 − (4 hrs. 28 mins.) = 7 hrs. 32 mins.

9. To strike 5 times at 5 O' clock the pendulum in the clock should covers 4 periods.
(Number of periods is always one less than the total number of hours)
For four periods it takes 12 sec.
For 1 period it takes
12/3 = 3 sec.
To strike 11 times at 11 O'clock it has to cover 10 periods.
For 10 periods it takes 10 × 3 = 30 sec.

10. (As explained in Q.No. 9)
In 9 hours there are 8 periods.
To cover 8 periods it takes 8 secs.
Hence, for 1 period it takes 1 sec.
To Strike 6 O'clock, it has to cover 5 periods.
For 5 periods it takes 5 × 1 = 5 sec.

11. Total number of hours between 6 a.m. today to 8 p.m. the next day is 38 hours. The clock gains 12 min. in 24 hours, in 38 hours it gains 19 minutes. When the actual time is 8 p.m. this clock shows 19 min. more i.e. 8 hrs. 19 min.
