The Figure Below shows the beams from a beacon with two search lights, one red and one green, which rotate at the same rate. If the red light rotates in a clockwise direction and the gree light rotates in a counterclockwise direction, what is the number of degrees through which each light must rotate before the red beam and green beam are aligned a second time?

a) 180* + w

b) 180* - w/2

c) 360* - w/2

d) (180* + w)/2

e) (360* + w)/2

Agree with Praetorian.

Questions like these can be a doozy, even when they're relatively straightforward,
