'Twenty to five' . Means 'twenty minutes before five o'clock'.

Or ' Forty minutes past four o'clock'.

On the analogue clock the minute ( large) finger will be pointing at '8' or 'VIII'.

The hour (smaller) finger will be pointing between four and five.

On the digital clock it will be '0440' (morning) or '1640' (afternoon).

NB The phrase 'o'clock' is an historical corruption for 'of the clock'.
