Write down 8:15 pm as a 24 hours clock time:
Correct Answer
D. 20 15
Explanation
The correct answer is 20 15 because 8:15 pm can be represented as 20:15 in the 24-hour clock format. In the 24-hour clock system, the hours range from 00 to 23, so 8 pm is equivalent to 20 in this format. The minutes remain the same, which is 15 in this case.

A pool is filled everyday with double the water from yesterday. If it takes the pool to be completely filled in 48 days, how long does it take to fill just half the pool?
Correct Answer
C. 47
Explanation
The pool is filled with double the amount of water each day, so we can infer that the amount of water in the pool each day forms a geometric sequence. Since it takes 48 days to completely fill the pool, we can write the equation 1 + 2 + 4 + ... + 2^(n-1) = 48, where n represents the number of days. Solving this equation, we find that n = 6. Therefore, it takes 6 days to fill half the pool. However, the options provided do not include 6 as a choice. Among the given options, the closest answer is 47, which is just one day short of filling half the pool.
