The clock loses 20 minutes in every hour of REAL time. That means that it has lost 20 minutes when it is showing 40 minutes after midnight, and it has actually lost 30 minutes when it is showing 1am. So, it loses 20 minutes for every hour of REAL time and 30 minutes for each hour that passes on the misfortune clock. <br /><br />When the misfortune clock is showing 4am, it has lost 120 minutes or 2 hours of time. So, when it shows 4am, it is actually 6am. Since that was 4 hours ago, it is now 10 am.

Thus it will show 2am when it is really 3 am, and it will show 4 am when it is really 6am. Thus it was 6 am when the clock stopped. It stopped 4 hours ago, so the time now is...<br /><br />10am.

At 3:00am the clock would read 2:00am; at 6:00am the clock would read 4:00am. The clock stopped at 6:00am four hours ago.

So, when it stopped one can add 4 times 20 minutes to the actual time, meaning the time was 5:10 at that point. Since it has been 4 hours since the clock stopped the actual time is 9:20Ólafurhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15967017520233680195noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3802979373213475425.post-29794398111585773942015-07-23T16:15:37.236+05:302015-07-23T16:15:37.236+05:304PM4PMHarihttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08949277953131421741noreply@blogger.com
