Solve this riddle mentally and quickly.
A train leaves from Magic City every 40 minutes to Fairyland.
When Alice reached the station, the station master told her that the train had left 15 minutes ago and the next train to Magic City will leave at 9:40 p.m.
At what time, did Alice reach the station?
The train has a gap of 40 minutes so the train before 9:40 pm would be at 9:00 pm.
As this information has been given that the train left 15 minutes prior to her reaching the station
We can conveniently say the time that Alice reached the station is;
9:00 p.m. + 15 min = 9:15 PM
