15 is the correct answer

11/2*30-30*5=15degrees

angle = 11/2(minutes) - 30(hours) angle = 11/2(30) - 30(5) angle = 165 - 150 angle = 15

in 1 minutes ------------ 6 degree. in 30 minutes ------------ 180 degree. Same for Hours hands. in 1 minutes ------------ .5 degree. in 30 minutes ------------ 15 degree. So total 180+15=185(for hours hand). So angle difference is 185-180 = 15 degrees.

A leap year there are 366 days means 52 weeks and 2days. so already we have 52 fridays. now the rest two days can be (sun, mon), (mon,tues),(tues, wed), (wed, thrus), (thrus, fri), (fri, sat), (sat, sun) so, the probability of 53 fridays= 2/7
