7.5 deg. The hour hand moves 30 deg for a full minute hand rotation 60 min (time). So when the minute hand moves 15 min, the hour hand makes 1/4th of 30 deg = 7.5 deg.

1 clock wise 12 hours is 360 degrees. 15 mins is equivalent for 29 degrees. Why? 360/15 is 29

90 degree, just imagine the clock infront of you! the clock is round = 360 degrees A clock (360 degree) is 12 hours. Every three hours is a quarter (1/4). 12 hours consists of 4 quarters = 12/3=4 360/4 = 90.
