Ans: Converting 12-hour format to 24-hour format is fairly simple. The 24-hour clock is a time convention that runs from midnight to midnight, from hour 0 to hour 23. If the time is 12 AM (12 at midnight), it is simple 0:00 hours. Then, 1:00 AM is denoted as 1:00 hours and so on till 12 PM (12 in the noon) i.e. denoted as 12:00 hours. From 1:00 PM to 11:59 PM, add 12 hours. For example, if the time is 2:00 PM, you can say (2+12= 14) the time is 14:00 hours in 24-hour time format.
Ans: For many people, one of the most confusing things about time is to understand whether 12 midnight is AM or PM. Similarly, what is 12 at noon called? As per the convention, 12 AM denotes midnight and 12 PM denotes noon. However, to avoid confusion, it is better to use 12 noon and 12 midnight.
