Check if you are friends with logic. Just solve this childrenâ€™s puzzle!

Schoolchildren solve this puzzle in just 5 seconds, while many adults spend hours trying to understand the logic, and even then, correct answers are rare. Why is that? Most likely because adults have already forgotten everything they were taught in school, and their minds donâ€™t work as quickly as before. But there are exceptions, and you might be one of them.

If you solve this task in less than 1 minute, you can rightfully call yourself a true genius! Yes, tell your friends about it, and even better, let them solve this puzzle too.

Attention, task. Examine the given clock, observe the displayed numbers, and estimate, down to the minute, what time should be set on the last clock.

It would be ideal if you refrain from using a calculator. Itâ€™s really not needed; all calculations can be easily done mentally. You just need to understand the logic!

Once youâ€™re ready, scroll down to see the solution and check it against your answer. Just be sure not to peek ahead of time! Itâ€™s just interesting to see if you can come to the right solution on your own.

Solution and correct answer:

Did you write down your answer in a notebook or in your phone notes? Letâ€™s check: the time on the last clock should be set toâ€¦ 7:05!

Hereâ€™s the explanation.

No formulas! Just logic and a couple of computational actions.

To determine the logic, take another look at all the clocks and calculate the time difference between each of them. There is definitely some pattern here!

**9:05 and 8:53 â€” the difference is 12 minutes.**

**8:53 and 8:29 â€” the difference is now 24 minutes.**

**8:29 and 7:53 â€” the difference is 36 minutes.**

So, to determine the time on the last clock, subtract 48 minutes from 7:53, and you get 7:05.
