• Yes, the hour hand shows what hour it is on the specific day
• Can you tell us how millatary hours work please.
• Millitary time (24-hour format) simply continues counting up from noon. If the given 24-hour format time is greater than 12, subtract 12 from the time to convert back to 12-hour format:
- = PM
- = PM
- = PM
