At 4.40 what is the minor angle between the hour hand and the minute hand.

A)100
B)110
C)120
D)130
E)150

According to me it is 'C' or 120
however it is wrong.

Solve and explain.

Don't forget that the hour hand is also past 4, so you have angle less than 120.

and 40 minutes is 2/3 of an hour, so the hour hand moved 1/3 from 5, which is 20 degrees from 4

100 degrees.
