    An hour hand moves 1/2 degree in each min, and min hand moves 6 degree in each min. So there will be a net increase of 5.5 degrees between the hands in 1 min.
    According to the question, there must be a net increase of 6 degrees between the hands.
    This would happen after 12/11 minutes.

    Answer: 12/11 minutes, that is about 1.09 min or 65.45 seconds.
