Wouldn't it be easier to take 250 mL / 60 min? = 4.16 rounded 4.20 hours

I got 4 hours and 10 mins.

20gtts=2ml (because of 10 drop set)
v
2ml=1min
v
500ml/2ml(per 1 min)= 250ml
v
250ml - 60mins=190ml
v
190ml - 60mins=130ml
v
130ml - 60mins=70ml
v
70ml - 60mins=10ml
v
10ml - 5mins=0ml
v
The answer should be 4 hours and 5 mins
