Not sure if this is an error. Just had a heated debate with partner on this one (sad though we are!)

"Mr. Edwards, Mr Peace and Mr Gearing work in the city.
Mr Edwards leaves for work at 8:30, fifteen minutes after Mr Peace. It takes Mr. Peace fifty-five minutes to get to work, ten minutes less than Mr. Gearing who leaves home at 8:00. Mr. Edwards arrives for work at 9:05.
What time does Mr Gearing arrive? "

Now when I first looked at this I thought the answer was 8:45 which corresponds with that given as the correct answer on the answer sheet but I can now see after the said discussion that if "it takes Mr. Peace fifty-five minutes to get to work, TEN MINUTES LESS than Mr. Gearing" then Mr Gearings journey took 65 minutes which would make the answer 9:05.

Is that right?

It's late and I should be dropping off with some light reading! Such is life.

Dear NotionPotion

9.05 is correct.

Are you looking at an e paper or a published booklet containg 4 papers?

If its an e paper, how old is it? This question was amended a long time ago.

If its the booklet, I think, if I remember correctly, there should be a slip of paper enclosed making note of any errors.

Oopsy, just discovered that yes indeed there is an Erratum piece of paper enclosed within the booklet correcting the said question from "less" to "more".
I should pay more attention.
Thanks for your prompt replies anyway.
It would appear that you are more of an insomniac than me!
