Given that a clock is correct at midnight and from that moment it begins to lose 1 minute per hour and stopped an hour and a half ago showing 16:46 the clock runs for less than 24 hours. The current time now is 18:30.

  1. Since the clock loses 1 minute per hour the correct time when it shows 16:46 is 17:00.

  2. It is given that clock stopped an hour and a half ago, hence the correct time is 18:30.
