There are 3 broad ways problem sums involving time can be tested:

1. Given time, find duration2. Given duration, find time3. Faulty clock

In this week’s question, we have picked a P4 time problem sum involving faulty clocks. A typical faulty clock time problem sum involves only 1 faulty clock. This question is slightly more difficult as it involves 2 faulty devices, a faulty clock and a faulty watch.

But if you break down the different problems, it becomes easy to solve. See below for the full solution!
