Write the time in words. Is it quarter past ten, quarter to
nine, quarter to ten, or quarter past nine?

In this question, we’re shown a
digital clock, and we’re asked to write the time in words. What time is shown on the
clock? We know the first digit on a
digital clock tells us the hour. And on this clock, the first digit
is a nine. Both of these times have a nine in
them. These digits on the clock tell us
the number of minutes. If it’s 9:15, that means it’s 15
minutes past nine. We know that one hour is 60
minutes. Half an hour is half of 60 which is
30 minutes. And a quarter of an hour is 15
minutes. The time in words is quarter past
nine.
