# Numerical Reasoning - clock

for this one... this is how I went about it

From 12 AM to 5 PM... we lose 5 mins each hour so that's 165 mins = 2.75 hours. But this doesn't get 3:35... I'm missing some calculation.

Interesting! ,it seems you are on point distributions spree under Numbers today
Clock Reset at Midnight: 12:00 AM. After every 55 Mins Clock jumps 5 Mins
When Clock Travels 12:00 AM to 05:00 PM Interval is 17 hour duration

With each passing hour Clock has jumped 5 mins , so total jump is 17 (hour) * 5 min = 85 mins = 1 hour 25 mins.

So when clock shows 05:00 PM Actual time should be 1 hour 25 mins behind it which is 3:35 PM
