Questions and Answers

      360 days

    • B.

      365 days

    • C.

      366 days

    • D.

      364 days

    Correct Answer
    B. 365 days
    Explanation
    A common year has 365 days. This is the standard length of a year in the Gregorian calendar, which is the most widely used calendar system in the world. It consists of 365 days divided into 12 months, with each month having varying lengths. The extra day that occurs every four years in a leap year is not considered part of a common year.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    How many weeks are in a year?

    • A.

      48

    • B.

      51

    • C.

      53

    • D.

      52

    Correct Answer
    D. 52
    Explanation
    There are 52 weeks in a year because each week consists of 7 days. So, multiplying 7 by 52 gives us a total of 364 days, which is the number of days in a non-leap year.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which years are leap years?

    • A.

      2007

    • B.

      2008

    • C.

      2010

    • D.

      2011

    • E.

      2012

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. 2008
    E. 2012
    Explanation
    Leap years occur every four years, with the exception of years that are divisible by 100 but not by 400. In this list, 2008 and 2012 are the only years that meet this criterion. Both 2008 and 2012 are divisible by 4 and are not divisible by 100, making them leap years. The other years listed (2007, 2010, 2011) do not meet the criteria and are not leap years.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A leap year has how many days?

    • A.

      364

    • B.

      365

    • C.

      366

    • D.

      367

    Correct Answer
    C. 366
    Explanation
    A leap year has 366 days because it is a year that contains an extra day, February 29th. This additional day is added to keep the calendar year synchronized with the solar year, which is approximately 365.25 days long. By adding an extra day every four years, we account for the extra time it takes for the Earth to orbit the sun.

    Rate this question:

      January

      August

    • D.

      February

    • E.

      April

    Correct Answer
    D. February
    Explanation
    In a leap year, which occurs every four years, an extra day is added to the month of February. This is because a leap year has 366 days instead of the usual 365 days. Therefore, the correct answer is February.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    One day has how many hours?

    • A.

    • D.

      24

    • E.

      25

    Correct Answer
    D. 24
    Explanation
    A day consists of 24 hours. This is a universally accepted fact and is based on the Earth's rotation on its axis. The rotation takes approximately 24 hours to complete, resulting in a day being divided into 24 equal parts, each known as an hour. Therefore, the correct answer is 24.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    One week has how many hours?

    • A.

      175

    • B.

    • D.

      165

    Correct Answer
    C. 168
    Explanation
    There are 7 days in a week and each day has 24 hours. To find the total number of hours in a week, we multiply 7 by 24, which equals 168. Therefore, the correct answer is 168.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    How many seconds are in one hour?

    • A.

      360

    • B.

      3000

    • C.

      3600

    • D.

      2400

    Correct Answer
    C. 3600
    Explanation
    There are 3600 seconds in one hour. This is because there are 60 seconds in a minute and 60 minutes in an hour. Therefore, to find the total number of seconds in an hour, you multiply 60 by 60, which equals 3600.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    How much is 1 hour 40 min + 30 min

    • A.

      1 hour 70 min

    • B.

      2 hours 10 min

    • C.

      2 hours 20 min

    Correct Answer
    B. 2 hours 10 min
    Explanation
    To find the total time, we add 1 hour 40 minutes and 30 minutes together. Since there are 60 minutes in an hour, we can convert 1 hour 40 minutes to 1 hour 60 minutes. Adding this to 30 minutes gives us a total of 2 hours 90 minutes. However, since there are 60 minutes in an hour, we can convert 90 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes. Therefore, the total time is 2 hours 10 minutes.

    Correct Answer
    B. 1:20pm
    Explanation
    In 3 hours and 55 minutes, the time will be 1:20pm. To calculate this, we add 3 hours to the current time, which gives us 12:25pm. Then we add 55 minutes to that, which brings us to 1:20pm.

      16:25

    • C.

      15:25

    Correct Answer
    C. 15:25
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 15:25 because 3:25pm is equivalent to 15:25 in the 24-hour format. In the 24-hour format, the hours range from 00 to 23, with 00 representing midnight and 12 representing noon. Therefore, 3:25pm would be represented as 15:25 in the 24-hour format.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What is the time in the 12 hour format at 18:55

    • A.

      8:55am

    • B.

      6:55pm

    • C.

      5:55pm

    Correct Answer
    B. 6:55pm
    Explanation
    The given time is 18:55, which is in the 24-hour format. To convert it to the 12-hour format, we subtract 12 from the hour value if it is greater than 12. In this case, 18 is greater than 12, so we subtract 12 from it, resulting in 6. The minutes remain the same. Therefore, the time in the 12-hour format is 6:55pm.

    4,722 seconds are how many hours, minutes and seconds?

    • A.

      2 hours, 8 minutes and 22 seconds

    • B.

      1 hour, 18 minutes and 42 seconds

    • C.

      57 minutes and 22 seconds

    Correct Answer
    B. 1 hour, 18 minutes and 42 seconds
    Explanation
    To convert 4,722 seconds into hours, we divide by 3,600 (the number of seconds in an hour) and get 1 hour. Then, we take the remaining seconds (1,122) and divide by 60 (the number of seconds in a minute) to find that it is equivalent to 18 minutes and 42 seconds. Therefore, the correct answer is 1 hour, 18 minutes, and 42 seconds.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    3,658 minutes are how many days, hours and minutes?

    • A.

      3 days and 58 minutes

    • B.

      3 days, 6 hours and 58 minutes

    • C.

      2 days, 12 hours and 58 minutes

    Correct Answer
    C. 2 days, 12 hours and 58 minutes
    Explanation
    To convert 3,658 minutes into days, hours, and minutes, we divide the total number of minutes by the number of minutes in a day (24 hours x 60 minutes = 1,440 minutes). This gives us 2 days. Then, we take the remaining minutes (3,658 - 2 days x 1,440 minutes = 778 minutes) and divide it by the number of minutes in an hour (60 minutes). This gives us 12 hours. Finally, we have 778 - 12 hours x 60 minutes = 58 minutes left. Therefore, the correct answer is 2 days, 12 hours, and 58 minutes.
