A circle is 360 degree . A clock has 12 numbers. So. 360/12= 30 degree. The question is asking for smaller angle formed? So per hour will be 30 degree. If it was 6 o clock it would be 180 degree. If it is 7 oclock 180-30=150 degree! option A.
If it asks for bigger angle formed the answer would be 210 degree

Twelve numbers divide the clock into 360°/12 = 30-degree sections (twelve of them).

To calculate angles of times on the hour to the left of 6 o'clock, subtract the little hand's number from 12 and multiply by 30.

At 7 o'clock, little hand points to 7 (big hand is at 12)

(12 - 7) = 5 (sections)

5 * 30° = 150°

Answer A
