Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What unit of time does the longer hand on a watch tell?

The longer hand moves a lot faster than the hour hand. It goes all the way around the clock when the hour hand moves to a new number.
2. What does the smaller hand on a watch tell?

This hand is extremely slow. It only moves one number forward every hour.
3. Usually, each dash between a number on a watch stands for one minute.

Every minute, the minute hand moves from one of these dashes to the other. There are sixty of them if you include the number dashes themselves.
4. What time is it if the minute hand and the hour hand are on the twelve?

The hour is whatever number the hour hand is pointing to, in this case twelve. Also, if the minute hand is pointing at the twelve, it is always zero.
5. If the minute hand is pointing at the number six, then it means six minutes past the hour.

When the minute hand is pointing to the six it means it is thirty minutes past the hour. Six minutes past is the sixth dash.
6. Some clocks might have a very thin hand that moves very fast around the clock. What does this hand measure?

This hand is usually a different color than the other hands. It is also usually longer than the minute hand.
7. What time is it if the minute hand is on the nine and the hour hand is almost to the six?

When the minute hand is on the nine it it actually on the forty-fifth dash. The hour hand isn't at the six yet so it is still the five hour.
8. The time is 6:30 when the minute hand is on the 6 and the hour hand is between the six and the seven.

The hour hand won't be on the six because it is not 6:00. The minute hand is actually on the thirtieth dash.
9. What time is it when the minute hand is on the three and the hour hand is a little bit past the seven?

The minute hand is on the three which is actually the fifteenth dash. The hour hand hasn't made it to the eight yet so it is still the seven hour.
10. Here comes a tricky one. What time is it if the minute hand is two dashes past the seven and the hour hand is almost to the four?

Two dashes past the seven is the thirty-seventh dash. The hour hand hasn't made it to the four yet so it is still the three hour.
