In most parts of the U.S. we would say 9:30 (nine thirty).

"The class started at nine thirty" was accepted (11/14/18). "Nine thirty" should be the primary answer, because "half past nine" is not a common expression in the US.

I agree nine thirty should also be acceptable

Nine thirty is much more commonly used. Also, the hint shows nine thirty and doesn't mention half past.

[Nine and a half] is not used in telling time in English.

Wouldn't we usually say "the class", not "class", in English? Or in the USA, is just "class" usual? I don't think it is in the uk
