Solution

## The correct option is A between 1 and 2 Time at which Alex reach back home = 07:15 + 6 hours and 47 minutes let us first add 6 hours = 07:15 + 6 = 13: 15 in 12 hour clock, 13 - 12 = 01, 13:15 = 01:15 P.M. Now let us add 47 minutes 15 + 47 = 62 We know 60 minutes is 1 hour So the time will be = 1:15 + 47 minutes = 2:00 + 2 minutes = 2:02 for 2 minutes the minute hand will be between 1 and 2.
