The clock shows time in 12 hour cycle. The first cycle of the hour hand completes at 12 o’clock midday or noon. The second cycle of the hour hand completes at 12 o’clock midnight.

‘a.m.’ and ‘p.m.’ are used to represent the time of the day.

‘a.m.’ stands for ante meridiem, which means before midday. Thus, ‘a.m.’ is used between 12 o’clock midnight to 12 o’clock noon. So, 7 o’clock in the morning is 7 a.m.

‘p.m.’ stands for post meridiem, which means after midday. Thus, ‘p.m.’ is used between 12 o’clock noon to 12 o’clock midnight. So, 7 o’clock at night is 7 p.m.
