Always post the answer choices along with the question. It makes it easier for the others, and more likely for you to get a response.

Coming to the Question.


1st Condition:

Nullepart(N) - 2:01 pm on Monday.

If its Tuesday in Eimissan (E) , E is at least 10 hours ahead, to be precise 9 hours 59 minutes ahead, for it to be 12:00AM on Tuesday. Any less than this and it'll still be a Monday in E.

Also, at max, according to geography, it can be 24 hours ahead.

So the first condition tells us E is between 9:59 and 24 hours ahead when compared to N.

2nd Condition

Eimissan - 1pm on Wednesday

Its a Wednesday in Nullepart too. So the time in Nullepart is anywhere between 12AM and 1PM on Wednesday, ie. 13 hours.

Any more than 13 hours, and it would be a Tuesday in Nullepart.

This condition tells us that N, is, at max, 13 hours behind E. Rephrase: E is at max, 13 hours ahead of N.

Combining both conditions:

E is 9:59 to 13 hours ahead of N.

When it is Noon Friday in Nullepart:

E = 12PM + 9:59 = 9:59PM on Friday.
to
E = 12 PM + 13 = 1AM on Saturday.


Hope this is clear.
