- Published on 14 Apr 17

a. 150°
b. 160°
c. 170°
d. 180°

ANSWER: 160°
 
At 2 o’ clock, the hour hand is at 60° from the vertical.

In 40 minutes,
Hour hand = 60 + 40 x (0.5) = 80° (The hour hand moves at 0.5 dpm)

Minute hand = 40 x (6) = 240° (The minute hand moves at 6 dpm)

Difference or angle between the hands = 240 - 80 = 160°
