There are two types of clock - digital and analog. Digital clocks use just numbers whilst analog clock use words. For example, 12:00 on a digital clock would be 12 O'clock on an analog. Some digital clocks are '24 hour' clocks. This means that instead of using AM or PM to tell you if it is morning or afternoon, different numbers are used. For example, 3AM would be 03:00 on a 24 hour clock and 3PM would be 15:00.
