IMO C

Since the clock is showing correct time at 4:00 am
And for the correct time.it succeeds by 2hours and 15 min.
Therefore the faulty clock will move anticlockwise by 2:15 too.
4:00-2:15= 1:45 am

(D) 1:15 a.m.
(E) 1:10 a.m.




Instead of going forward for 2 hours and 15 minutes, the clock is going backward for 2 hours and 15 minutes. Therefore, it will show the time 4:00 am - 2 hrs 15 min = 1:45 am when the correct time is 6:15 am.

Answer: C
