James and Matthew want to draw half past two. Who is right, James or Matthew?

The minute hand on James’s clock is pointing at number six. The minute hand on Matthew’s clock is between the number two and the number three. The minute hand on James’s clock has made half a turn from o’clock to half past. Does James’s clock say half past two? Let’s check the hour hand.

The hour hand is pointing between number two and number three. This means the hour is between 2 and 3 o’clock. It’s after 2 o’clock, but not quite 3 o’clock. So James’s clock says half past two. James is correct. The hour hand on Matthew’s clock is pointing to number six, which means it’s something past six. This means that James is correct because his clock shows half past two.
