The minute hand moves through $120^{\large\circ}$ in 20 minutes or moves through $\large\frac{2\pi}{3}$ radians.
Given :
Length of the minute hand is 20cm.
Distance moved by the tip of the hand=$l$
$\Rightarrow l=20\times \large\frac{2\pi}{3}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{40\pi}{3}$cm
Hence (c) is the correct answer.
