### Dhaka Junior 2011/8

8. Abir started at $9:30$ pm from his house to go to Nayel’s house. When he reached there, he saw it was $8:55$ pm in Nayel’s clock. He started back towards his house when it was $9:00$ pm at Nayel’s. He reached at his house when it was $10:15$ pm in his clock. If Abir needed equal time to go and come back, find out the number of minutes Nayel’s clock is slow by.

the total time abir took is $9:30-8:55=45$ minutes.in it he stayed $5$ minutes in nayel's house. so he needs $20$ minutes to reach nayel's house.so, when he reaches nayel's house abir's clock said it was $9:50$ when nayel's clock it was $8:55$
so his clock is $55$ minutes slow
