Numerical Reasoning - clock

Camillia used Ask the Experts™
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

Ha. Yeah. I posted in my other thread that I'm practicing for my interviews because I decided I've had enough of my abusive manager and I'm interviewing. I got a numerical reasoning tests and just practicing. I got good scores on SQL and C# but there's one company I'm interested in and they might require Numerical, Logical and verbal reasoning tests. I'm practicing.

Let me look at your answer. Thanks for helping and double checking my answers.
