  1. I am pretty sure that it is 8 because I worked it out 2 ways:

    1:figured out myself how much it turns into that shape on a clock a day.

    2: I used my watch.

  2. The answer is twice in 24hrs.
    From 12 mid-night, it is am. 3 am is a right angle. But as we go on in the day, 12 midday is pm. Once again, 3 pm is a right angle. That is the correct answer!

  3. My Mathematical Instincts say that there is 2 in each hour, so, 24 x 2 = 48. So, I’m 100% sure I’m right.
