"It is quarter to one."
Translation:Bire çeyrek var.

whenever we use "kala" we have to continue the sentence and state an event or something. örnek (example): bire çeyrek kala okulada ol! (at a quarter to one be at the school) but when we only want to tell the time we use "var". for example when someone asks us what time it is. örnek: bire çeyrek var. (it is a quarter to one) same goes to "geçe" ve "geçiyor".
"Quarter" means "quarter of an hour" or "1/4th of an hour" (i.e. 15 minutes). It is used when telling time.
1 hour = 60 minutes 60 / 4 = 15
A quarter to 1 means 15 minutes until 1 which means 12:45.
(Similarly, a quarter after 1 means 15 minutes after 1, or 1:15.)
I hope this helps!
