Solution

## The correct option is B 49 At 6:30, the hands are 2.5 min. spaces apart. To be at right angles and that too between 6:30 and 7, the minute hand has to gain (2.5 + 15) = 17.5 min. spaces ∴ 55 min. spaces are gained in 60 min. So,17.5 min. spaces are gained in (6055×17.5)min. = 19111min. ∴ Required time = 49 111min. past 6.
