    time

    Hi there!
    I have a question about the expression of time.
    E.g. it's 2:00 now but my watch shows it's 2:10.
    Is it right if I say :My time is ten minutes faster than the correct time. ?
    E.g. it's 2:00 now but my watch shows it's 1:50.
    Is it right if I say:My time ran ten minutes behind than the correct time. ?

    I am not sure my answer.
    Could you correct my answers?
    Thanks a lot!

    What you say is:
    My watch is 10 minutes fast.
    My watch is 10 minutes slow.
