# What Time it is?

To tell what time it is? And how we need to see a time clock?

Time – A.M. and P.M.

There are 24 hours in a day.

The face of a clock has numerals from 1 to 12.

The hour hand takes two full rounds in 24 hours time clock.

The first round of the hour hand completes at 12 o'clock midday, also called 12 noon.

The second round of the hour completes at 12 o'clock midnight.

The hours from midnight to noon are known as a.m.

The hours from noon to midnight are known as p.m.

These hours are in the afternoon, evening or night.

a.m. or A.M. stands for Ante Meridian

p.m. or P.M. stands for Post Meridian

We do not write a.m. or p.m. with 12 o'clock. It is written as 12 noon and 12 midnight.

There is no o'clock written with a.m. or p.m. 8 o'clock in the morning is written as 8 : 00 a.m. 2 hours after noon is written as 2 : 00 p.m.

The hours and minutes are separated by a colon (:)
