Which clock shows the time five hours later?

First, we need to find the time on this clock. We can see the hour hand is just past one and the minute hand is pointing to number six, which means it’s half past or 30 minutes past the hour. So the time now is 1:30 or half past one.

We need to find the clock that shows the time five hours later or five hours after half past one. We can use a number line to help us solve this problem. We need to start counting at 1:30, half past one, and count forward five hours more.

One, two, three, four, five, so the time five hours later would be 6:30. Which of the clocks shows the time as 6:30? Let’s start with the first clock. The hour hand is just past six and the minute hand is actually pointing to number six, which means it’s half past or 30 minutes past the hour.

So this is the clock which shows the time five hours later.
