I was just wondering, what is the most normal way of interpretating in the last two hours.
If somebody asked you: What have you been doing in the last two hours?
What events from what time period would you mostly cover in your answer if it was already 19:40?
A. I would mention all important things since 17:00 until 19:40(now)
B. I would mention all important things since 18:00 until 19:40
(because 40 minutes can be understood as almost hour, but I am not sure if people would count it if it is not full 60 minute hour yet)
C. I would mention all important things since 17:00 until 19:00
Personally, I would go with choice A. But I am not sure if this is the most common way people use it. It might seem that it is almost 3 hours (2h 40m) but so far it is still just 2 hours + some minutes because i would say in the last 3 hours ONLY if 3x60m was completed and would not care if it was more than 3 hours but it still would have to be less than 4 hours.
Does somebody understand me? Which is the most common way of understanding?
