## 1 Answer

Given that, a digital watch $\text{X}$ beeps every $30$ seconds while watch $\text{Y}$ beeps every $32$ seconds.

Now, digital watch $X$ and $Y$ beep together every $= \text{LCM}(30,32) = 480$ seconds $= 8$ minutes.

First, they beeped together at $10\; \text{AM}$. Then the immediate next time that they will beep together $= 10\; \text{AM} + 8$ minutes $= 10:08\; \text{AM}.$

So, the correct answer is $(A).$
