Correct Answer - Option 1 : 11:08

The time she sets on the clock: 7:00

The difference between 7:00 and 11:00 is 4 hours.

The clock goes ahead in each hour by 2 minutes.

Thus, the clock will be ahead in 4 hours by 8 minutes.

Therefore, the time shown by the clock at 11:00 will be 11:08.

Hence, 11:08 is correct.
