    What time is session?

    What time is "session" or "class"?

    What time is the cricket match that you are going to play with Tom's team?

    What time is the marriage ceremony?

    What time is the party?

    Are these sentences correct?

    If yes, then can we also say "What time does the class start" or "At what time is your match going to start or take place" or "When does the party start"?

    What time is "news" or "cricket match" on TV? Can we omit "On TV" here?

    Please check.

    Re: What time is session?

    The first sentence needs the definite article, just like the second, third, and fourth, which are correct.

    The next three questions are correct.

    Your final sentences need the definite article. If you omit "on TV", your listener won't know that you're asking about the TV schedule. The questions are grammatically correct either way.

    Re: What time is session?

    What time is the "session" or "class"?

    What time is the cricket match that you are going to play with the Tom's team?

    What time is the marriage ceremony? (Which article do I need here)

    What time is the party? (Which article do I need here)

    Are these sentences correct?

    If yes, then can we also say "What time does the class start" or "At what time is your match going to start or take place" or "When does the party start"?

    What time is the "news" or "cricket match" on TV? So, without "On TV" it would sound more like that I am asking about a live match. Am I correct?

    Yup.

    It's unclear because TV may play matches live. The context would tell you whether you're talking about live action, live TV or highlights. The language doesn't. As always, the listener would ask for clarification if they were not sure.

    So, can we say "What time is the match that we going to see in the stadium?" Or "What time is the match highlights on TV?"

    Can you spot the mistake in the second?

    There is a word missing above. Can you work out what it is?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
