26 minutes


The time between 3 & 6 is 180 minutes.
x minutes to 6 is time now.
180-x minutes after 3 o'clock
50 minutes ago was (180-x)-50=130-x
4x=130-x
x=26 minutes,
26 to 6= 5:36 is time now

The clock stopped three hours ago showing 12:08pm.

The clock runs for less than 24 hours. What is the correct time now?
