A quarter past two!
Time on a clock quarter = quarter of an hour = 60/4 = 15 minutes example, quarter to three = 2:45 quarter past three = 3:45 Also half past two in some countries is referred as half to three.
It can't be half past and a quarter to 5 at the same time. I assume the answer is 5.30 for half past 5, and 4.45 for quarter to 5.
You stand straight and your shadow will show you the time, by pointing at o'clock, quarter past, half past or quarter to.
From a quarter to the hour to a quarter past the hour, it is the hour, whilefrom a quarter past the hour to a quarter to the hour, it is the half hour.
and a quarter ( when telling the time - a quarter past)
1:15 (one-fifteen) is quarter past one since it is one-quarter of an hour after one o'clock.
