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= 90∘360∘=14 revolution
b) Here the hour hand rotates from 6 to 12, which is to right angles.
∴ The fraction of revolution= 180∘360∘=12 revolution
