Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

Start by ordering the different watch times shown from the latest time to the earliest.

Now how does that relate to the four people's statement?

The fastest watch reads 1:35, and the slowest one reads 1:05.

The person with the slowest watch is A, and the one with the fastest watch is D.

As long as you start with either the slowest or fastest watch, the answer should be clear

A has the slowest watch, and it says 1:05.

A's watch is 20 minutes slow.

A's watch reads 1:05.

So what's the correct time?


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad.

Compare the times on the top screen with the statement made by each person.

Correct

Correct!

It's 1:25 in the morning! It was a nice evening, but it's time to go home to bed.
