Two flights leave Chicago for Tashkent at the same time. Neither is a direct flight: flight A stops in Vladivostok on its way to Tashkent, whereas flight B stops first in Prague and then in Istanbul en route to Tashkent. If each stop is exactly 85 minutes long and flight A arrives in Tashkent at 8:30 AM local time, what time will it be in Chicago when flight B arrives in Tashkent?

11:35 p.m.

For flight A: total flying time from Chicago to Vladivostok = 9:45 hours
Stop at Vladivostok = 1:25 hours
total flying tiem from Vladivostok to Tashkent = 6:30 hours

Hence, total flying time for flight A from Chicago to Tashkent = 17:40 hours.

Similarly, for flight B, total flying time from Chicago to Tashkent = 19:45 hours.

Difference between the flying time of A and B = 2:05 hours.
Hence, local time at Tashkent when flight B arrives should be 8:30 + 2:05 a.m. = 10:35 a.m.

Now, 5:00 a.m. at Tashkent is 6:00 p.m. in Chicago.
Hence, 10:35 a.m. at Tashkent should be 11:35 p.m. in Chicago.
