I was marked wrong for selecting "Il est deux heures" as one of the choices for "It is 2 p.m."

I was marked wrong for selecting "Il est deux heures" as one of the choices for "It is 2 p.m."

I did select the other two correct responses. I understand that after noon it goes to military time, but I have also been taught that if you are asking someone for the time in the middle of the day it's obvious that it's not for example 2 a.m., so you would be fine in France to answer that it is 2 p.m. (rather than using military time) Is that incorrect?
