# AM and/or PM

On a quiz, the question was "Il est_________ (It's ten past three o'clock)(Hint use the 12 hour clock) " I wrote Il est quinze heures dix. The only accepted answer was "Il est trois heures dix". There was no indication that it was supposed to be AM. Can you please either arrange to have it accept both AM and PM or at least indicate that you specifically needed AM or PM in the question.

Thank you!

Hi Alicia,

I have checked and ' il est quinze heures dix' should be accepted. So if this isn't the case, please use the Report it button on your correction board and we will take a closer look at your answer.

The hint says to use the 12-hour clock. Quinze heures dix minutes is the 24-hour clock. Using the 12-hour clock you would say: Il est trois heures dix (du matin / de l'après-midi).

I don't know if both possibilities (du matin and de l'après-midi) are accepted in the exercise.

HI Cécile, I wonder why the answer "il est quinze heures dix" is accepted even though the hint says to use the 12-hour clock?

Good point Chris ! However, as far as I can see there’s no hint on that particular question and the hint is only on some of them.
