Solution

Given:
• The current day and time is 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday

To find:
• The time (to the nearest minute) 100,000 seconds from now

Approach and Working:
As 1 hour = 3600 seconds, we can classify 100,000 seconds in the following manner:
• $$\frac{100000}{3600}$$ = 27.78 hours = 24 hours + 3 hours + 0.78 hours = 1 day 3 hours (0.78 * 60) minutes = 1 day 3 hours 46 minutes(approx.)

From 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, if we move forward 1 day 3 hours 46 minutes, we get 1:16 a.m. Thursday

Hence, the correct answer is option D.
