1000.16 – Telling Time Backwards, Part II

Locks and Lockets is a Main Street shop shared by a barber and a jeweler. Sitting in the barber’s chair, you can see the jeweler’s four clocks reflected in the barber’s mirror. What time is on each clock, which will strike the hour next, what hour will that be, and how soon?



A: 4:30, B: 3:08, C: 9:27, D: 2:48.

D will strike next, the hour of 3. And that will be in 12 minutes.
