a) 3 to 6
b) 6 to 12
[2 MARKS]


Solution

Each option: 1 Mark

We may observe that in one complete clockwise revolution, the hour hand will rotate through 360
a) We have to find out the fraction of a clockwise revolution that an hour hand turns through when it rotates from 3 to 6.
Now, when the hour hand rotates from 3 to 6 it will rotate through 1 right angle. 
The fraction of revolution= 90360=14 revolution
b) Here the hour hand rotates from 6 to 12, which is to right angles.
The fraction of revolution= 180360=12 revolution
