Right on! We just don't say, "Now is twenty to three."

what the?? confused? if its time, shouldnt it be quarter to three?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sylvia_Nguyen

The sentence is referring to the time 2:40. Quarter to three is 2:45.

"It is now..." not accepted. Must learn KISS...Keep It Simple Stupid...

This is VERY confusing!!! To have the "to/til" AFTERWARDS just doesn't make sense.

When telling time, we actually use "til" (or until) rather than "to." Please accept all three ways for the answer.
