    Couple of questions on some phrases.

    Hi,i have been doing a listening practice,and i wonder about the meaning of few phrases.
    1. I have 20 to 1, but my watch runs a little fast.
    What does that mean? is it that a speaker says it is 12:40(time)?.For all i know, the speaker was talking about time.

    2. He weighs 4 and a quarter kilo : Does this mean he weighs 4.25 kg?


    3. There is a garage on the other street corner.
    Honestly, i have no idea where the garage is.

    Please help me figure it out.

    The speaker's watch says 12:40, but he or she suspects that the true time is probably a little earlier.

    Yes.

    3. There is a garage on the other street corner.

    Nor do I. Please recheck your source material and make sure the quotation is perfectly accurate.

    Please help me figure it out.
