Solution

## The correct option is A 11:50 A.M.The show ended at 02:15 P.M. Duration of show = 2 hours 47 minutes So, the show started at = 02: 15 - 2 hours 47 minutes = 14: 15 - 2 hours 47 minutes let's first subtract 2 hours alone. Now let's subtract the remaining 47 minutes, = 12:15 - 47 minutes 47 can be written as 15 + (47 - 15) = 12:15 - 15 minutes - 32 minutes = 12:00 - 32 minutes we know, 12:00 P.M. - 30 minutes - 2 minutes = 11:28 A.M. Now, she got late by 22 minutes Hence, she entered the theatre at = 11:28 + 22 minutes = 11:50 A.M.
