    Post a question about time

    Dear friends,

    "I'm meeting Terry in fifteen minutes at five o'clock."

    Does it mean that it's four forty-five, and I'm going to meet Terry at five o'clock?

    Thank you!

    Yes, it must be 4.45 if it's going to be 5.00 in 15 minutes.

    I would add a comma to that sentence, as shown above.
