1min=60sec, so 1min 27 secs is=60+27=87
then 1 month=30days

now,       30days=87secs late
1day   =   ?  x

x  = (87*1)/30=2.9 secs

Ans: 2.9 secs per day it will be late.

1.27 need to convert in Second = 87 Second.
87 Second/Month = with different-2, ans according to Month
If month is 31 Days = 2.80 Second.
If month is 30 Days = 2.90 Second.
If month is 28 Days = 3.10 Second.
If month is 29 Days = 3.00 Second.
