5 minutes
10 minutes
15 minutes
20 minutes
The time taken for the minute hand to move from one number to another on the clock face represents 5 minutes. So the movement from 3 to 6 represents 3 numbers or 15 minutes.
2.
What time did a film start, if it finished at 9:30 PM and lasted for 2 hours and 45 minutes?
6:45 PM
7:00 PM
6:30 PM
7:15 PM
Subtracting 2 hours from 9:30 PM gives 7:30 PM and subtracting an additional 45 minutes gives the start time of 6:45 PM.
3.
If a TV show finishes at 9:45 PM and the next one starts at 10:00 PM, how long is the gap?
5 minutes
10 minutes
15 minutes

4.
How many minutes are there in three quarters of an hour?
20 minutes
30 minutes
45 minutes
60 minutes
As there are 60 minutes in an hour, three quarters of an hour would be 34 x 60 = 45 minutes.
5.
At what time would it be 1 hour 45 minutes after 12:30 PM?
2:15 PM
1:45 PM

6 AM
Every 24 hours the time falls on the same point. 72 is a multiple of 24 so it will be 12 noon again after 72 hours.
