it is 9 pm nowl
two hours from now i.e. at 11 pm we will be 1 hour from midnight and
one hour from now i.e. at 10 pm we will be 2 hours from midnight.
mathematical solution:
let the time now be y hours and two hours from now be x earlier than midnight. thus y+2+x=24.
similarly y+1+2x=24. solution is x=1 and y=21 hrs i.e. 9pm
