The explanation is a bit ambiguous you're right, but it's the example that's correct.
पौने translates directly to 'quarter to' in English. So where Harshita said '3/4 passed', that referred to the previous hour.
सवा similarly is exactly 'quarter past'.
Perhaps it makes more sense to start the example at 5.45:
- 5.45 - पौने छह बजे
- 6.00 - छह बजे
- 6.15 - सवा छह बजे
- 6.30 - साढ़े छह बजे
