    Time Logic Question

    The clock in my lounge is 10 minutes slower than my wrist watch, which is 6 minutes slow. My tram always leaves 6 minutes early, although it is scheduled for 8:55am.It takes me 20 minutes to get to the tram stop.
    What time must I leave, according to my lounge clock, in order to catch my tram?

    A.8:49am
    B.8:35am
    C.8:23am
    D.8:29am
    E.None of these

    Correct Answer E

    Cos I should leave house at 8:29 but the lounge clock is 10 minutes slower so when it is 8:29 am it's actually 8:39 am.So I must leave house at 8:19 am instead?

    PS.I think the clock in the lounge will be 16 minutes overall i.e. 10 + 6

    I must leave the house at 8:13 instead?

    Hope I am right?
