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

I think the exact time will be 10:51am because three days are complete so at the time 5:00am it will loses 48 min & 5:00am to 10:00am it will loses 3 to 4min more so the total time lose will be 51min.So exact time will be 10:51am.

assume that x minutes have passed since 5:00 clock on the 4th day when clock shows 10:00

at the begining of 4th day 48 min have been lost(as wexplained in previous posts) so at 5 the clock shows 4:12

now total time(min) lost on 4th day till when the clock shows 10:00 is x/90. total time lost is also equal to the difference of the minutes passsed and minutes the clock shows has passed ie x-minutes b/w 4:12 and 10:00 =x-(348 minutes)

x/90=x-348

solving gives x=351.9 thus minutes lost till when clock shows 10 is 351.9/90=3.91 total time lost since 1st day 48+3.91 thus coprrect time is 10:(51.91 )

The answer is: The watch will show 9:08 am on 4th day Because since everyday its losing 16 min so 3 days 48 min,
In next 5 hrs, it will lose by 3 min 20 sec almost. you can calculate it as 24 hrs = 16 min loss 5 hrs = (16/24)*5= 3.3 min = 3 min 20 sec which
you add in 48 min, so this is how watch will be lost by 51 min 20 sec and now watch will show 9:08 am in morning on 4th day!!

The clock loses 16 min a day .. so it loses 48 min in 4 days...ok if it loses 16 min in 24 hour so it loses 16/24 min in 1 hour and 5*16/24 min loses in 5 hour...

therefore to reach 10 am on 4th day the time will lack by..

on the fourth day at 5:00 am the clock would have lost 48 minutes. since 5 hours have elapsed after 5:00 am , at 10:00 am we need to calculate the loss of time for 5 hours.

for 24 hours-------16 min loss 5 hours---------?

10/3=3.33

the total loss 48+3.33=51.33 the time would be 10:51:33

Each day 16 mins so next four days its 16*4=64 mins=1hr and 4mins late. Now its diffrence of 5 to 10 am,so 5 hrs which is 5hrs. 12hrs diffrence is 16 min then for 5 hrs it is 6.66 mins difference for 5hrs. Total counts 1hr+4mins+6.66mins=1hr 10.66mins. Actual time is 11am and 10 mins an 6-7secs.

24 hours 16 min. loss but 1st day 5.00 am to 4th day 5.00am lost 48min Another 5 hours remaining so 24 hours - 16min 5 hours - ? (5*16)/24=3.33 Total time last is=48.00 sec + 3.33sec = 51.33 so exact time is=10:51:33

The clock loses 16 min a day. so it loses 48 min in 4 days ok If it loses 16 min in 24 hour so it loses 16/24 min in 1 hour and 5*16/24 min loses in 5 hour.

Therefore to reach 10 am on 4th day the time will lack by.

48+(5*16/24) min Hence the exact time will be 10hr 51 minutes & 33 seconds

3 days -> 48 mins late And time on clock is 4.12.00 am To cover the clock from 4.12 to 10.00 am, there is a loss of [(16/24)*5.8 ] mins.. so total loss will be 48 + 3.87 mins. Hence Total delay will be 51.87 mins or 51 mins and 54 secs.. Answer: 10.51.54..

i got 10:51:52am

4th day at 5am actual time while the clock time is 4:12 am
10am - 4:12 = 5hours and 48 mins difference so 5 + 5:48 = 10:48:00 actual time
every 1.5 hours of difference the clock will have 1min delay and
1.5mins of the actual time is 1sec delay for the clock
remaining hours to 16 mins delay = (24x60) - (5*60)+48mins = 1440 - 348 = 1092/60 = 18hrs and 12 mins
remaining hours to 16 mins delay =18hrs/1.5hrs = 12mins and 12mins/1.5mins 8 seconds
total delay = 16mins - 12mins and 8sec = 3mins and 52sec
actual time = 10:48:00 + 3mins and 52 sec = 10:51:52am

Ans Is : 10:48 am
Bcoz first dat time is 5:00 am
second day it looses time 16 minites means time is 4:44 am
third day again it looses time 16 minites means time is 4:28 am
final fourth day again it looses 16 minites means time is 4:12 am
so the time difference between first day and fourth day is 48 minites
so the exact time is 10:48 am
