7.5 degrees. The minute hand will be at 15 but you have to consider the interim movement of the hour hand. Every 12 hours, the hour hand moves 360 degrees, therefore every hour it moves 30 degrees. The easiest way is to multiply 1/12 (for the hour) times 360 degrees (we arrive at 30 degrees as anticipated) then, for the quarter hour passed to get to 15 past, mulitply 1/4 by 30 degrees and you get 7.5

I got this question and believe me it was hard to think cool under that kind of pressure but just remember to think aloud.
