## Question

**An accurate clock shows 8 o’clock in the morning. Through how may degrees will the hour hand rotate when the clock shows 2 o’clock in the afternoon?**

A. 160°

B. 180°

C. 170°

D. 154°

**Answer:** B

**Solution:**

We know that angle traced by hour hand in 12 hrs = 360°

From 8 to 2, there are 6 hours.

Angle traced by the hour hand in 6 hours = 6 × 360/12 = **180°**
