Position of Minutes hand at 10-12 and 10-15 are shown in figure. Displacement and distance covered are also marked.
 
Displacement = 10√2 cm ( Hypotenuse of right triangle, other sides are 10 cm and 10 cm)
 
Distance covered = (1/4) th of circumference of circle of radius 10 cm = (1/4)×2×π×10 = 15.71 cm
