question no.1
Last year Mita and her friends learnt how to tell the hours. This year they want to learn about the minutes. So one day Mita brings her clock in the class. She says to Ms Asma Haque, “Today we all want to learn how to read the minutes in a clock.” Ms Asma Haque is happy that her students are curious to learn. She takes the clock and shows it to the class. “Look at the clock, students. Now tell me the time.” Nobody could tell the time because the long and the small hands are not at the same place.
