Burn one candle completely==60 mins

Burn the other candle from both the ends ==30 mins
60+30=90mins:)

First ignite only one candle for 60 min then ignite 2nd candle from both side for 30 min. hence time measured will be 60+30=90 min

Burn up 2 candles simultaneously and then when these two candles burn half, we blow one out and finally when the burning candle burn out, we light up the blown out candle.
