it is very simple and as usual people are over complicating the issue. at 1 hr and 5 mins both the hour hand and the minute hand are on the 1 because that is 1 hr and 5 minutes after 12. now for it to be exact the second had has to be on the 12 at that exact second for it to be 1 hr and 5 minutes past 12 on a complete rotation. therefore the second hand is 30 degrees exactly from both the hour hand and the minute hand which are both exactly on each other.
