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?
Ans: The answer according to me should be First of all minutes lost per hour=(16/24)=2/3minutes lost per hour, now,
First day: 5am to 5am =24 hours clock looses minutes= 16 minutes 2nd day : 5am to 5am=24 hours clock losses minutes= 16 minutes 3rd day : 5am to 5am=24 hours clock losses minutes= 16 minutes
Now on fourth day 5 am to 10 am time lost is (5 hours * 2/3)=103 Thus total time lost till 10 am of 4th day is 3*16+10/3=48 min+3min+20 sec=51min 20 sec so the time should be 10:50:20
