    We don't adjust clocks backward to standard time during daylight saving time. I'd revise this one, Andrew.

    No, the clocks are adjusted back after daylight savings are over typically in the Fall.

    That's right, but the quoted sentence says the backward adjustment happens during daylight saving time.

    2) Set your clock five minutes ahead because it is five minutes slow. Set your clock five minutes back it is five minutes fast.

    3) Set your clock ten minutes ahead and match it with my clock because mine's time is accurate.

    Could you please check my sentences? How about these two sentences?

    We cannot use "advance" in this context am I correct? I read it in Wikipedia so that is why I asked you.
