Exact Time-2

Question: A clock was set right at 5 am then it loses 16 minutes every day, on the 4th day when it shows 10 am, what is the exact time.


It will be around 10:52 a.m
The clock loses 16 min every day. "On the 4th day" implies 3 days have been completed. Hence, it has lost 48 min. When it is 5:00 a.m, it shows 4:12 a.m Hence, when it is 11:00 a.m, it shows 10:08 a.m. Every minute, the clock loses, 1/90 min i.e 2/3 of sec. Hence, the actual time will be around 10:52 a.m
