Time Duration: 30 minutes.
Directions to solve: Each of the following given problems consist of a question and two statements which are marked as (1) and (2). Kindly use the data mentioned in (1) and (2) together with the other given information like the number of hours in a day, the definition of clockwise, mathematical facts, etc to figure out whether the statements are sufficient to answer the question or not.
All the numbers that have been used in this section are real numbers. A figure for a problem is basically given to provide information consistent with that in the question, not essentially with the additional information quoted in the statements.
