Translation:Now it is twenty to three.
I put "it is now twenty minutes until three."
also marked wrong: "it is now twenty to three"
Right on! We just don't say, "Now is twenty to three."
Right now is twenty til three
what the?? confused? if its time, shouldnt it be quarter to three?
The sentence is referring to the time 2:40. Quarter to three is 2:45.
No problem! =)
"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.
