If 2 hours ago it was as long after one o’clock in the afternoon as it was before one o’clock in the morning.
What time would it be now?
Since there are 12 hours between the 2 times, and half of that time is six, then the halfway mark would have to be 7 o’clock.
If it were 7 o’clock, two hours ago, the time would now be nine o’clock. 🙂
