    I do not know the exact time but as far as I know few minutes had passed since 10:30.

    A: At what time did it happen exactly?

    B: "I do not know the exact time but as far as I know few minutes had passed since 10:30" or "It happened few minutes past the 10:30".

    C: What time would it be?

    D: "Don't know because we do not have a watch but it must be few minutes past the 10:30" or "I think few minutes have passed since 10:30".

    Please check my sentences.

    "It was just gone 10.30."

    Or, in past perfect, It had just gone 10:30.

    Or It was just after 10:30.

    Okay, it has just gone 10:30 or it is just gone 10:30.

    B: "I do not know the exact time but as far as I know it was just gone 10:30" or "It happened just gone 10:30" (please rephrase it).


    D: "Don't know because we do not have a watch but it must have just gone 10:30" or "I think it is just gone 10:30".
