2Which clock shows the same time as this?

Solution
The hour hand (shorter, fatter hand) is between 9 and 10, so the time is in the 9 o'clock hour. The minute hand (longer, skinnier hand) has gone halfway around to the down position, and half of an hour is 30 minutes. So the time is 9:30.

2Which clock shows the same time as this?

Solution
The hour hand (shorter, fatter hand) is between 3 and 4, so the time is in the 3 o'clock hour. The minute hand is pointing at the 4, so the minute is 4 * 5, which is 20.
