Here is my attempt:

The minute hand is pointing at 2, which is 10 minutes after the hour.

The hour hand must point to a spot after 2 + 5 =7 AM {The Sun is rising in the East means that it is still AM}

At 7: 10 does not work because the angle between the hands ==155 degree. The angle must be < 90 (acute)

At 8:10 the angle ==~185 degress {No good!}

At 9:10 the angle==145 degrees {No good!}

At 10:10 the angle==115 degrees {No good!}

**At 11:10 AM the angle==85 degrees, which is < 90. {This looks like plausible answer}!!**
