Solution

## The correct option is B 12: 15 pmTime at which the movie ended = 2:10 pm = 14 hours 10 minutes (in 24 - hour format) Total length of the movie = 2 hours 15 minutes 14 hours 10 minutes - 2 hours = 12 hours 10 minutes 12 hours 10 minutes - 15 minutes = 11 hours 55 minutes Since I was late to the movies by 20 minutes, the time at which I reached the cinema hall is 11:55 + 00:20 = 12:15. 12:15(noon) is in the 24-hour format, so the time in 12-hour format is 12:15 pm. ∴ I reached the cinema hall at 12:15 pm.
