What can be said about a clock when the two hands of the clock
coincide every 65 minutes?

(A) It gains time
(B) It loses time
(C) Shows the correct time
(D) Data insufficient
(E) Loses and gains time alternatively

In 65 minutes the minute hand should move a 1+(1/12) rounds, this is five "places" from its original. The hour hand should moves five "places" and a little bit more every 65 minutes. So, if they coincide every 65 minutes the minute hand is moving faster than it should, so, it is gaining time.
