At 6'o clock ticks 6 times means 5 interval
and also given that time b/w first and last tick is 30 sec.
so
30/5=6
i.e time of each interval is 6 sec.

Similarly at 12'o clock, clock ticks 12 times i.e 11 interval
so
1 interval time=6
so 11 interval=11*6

@swatisrajput
6 ticks mean 5 intervals ? Acc. to me, it makes 6 intervals only. Because when once tick occurred, 1st interval is already covered and followed by next 5 intervals with next five ticks.
With every tick one interval is created.
With that reasoning my answer will be 60 seconds.
Can you please clarify it again.

1-2-3-4-5-6 there are 5 intervals and 30 sec is given in question...
so 6 o clock 5*6=30sec
7 o clock 6*6=36sec
.
.
.
11 o clock 10*6=60sec
12 o clock 11*6=66sec it will take....so answer is 66sec.
