What should I do in making a sentence consists of time as follows:

The observation is done from 10 AM until 03 PM.

Can I call the 10AM-03PM as midday or day?

Can I rephrase the original sentence as:

The observation is only done during the day, from 10 AM to 03 PM.

    I'm not certain that it's clear what you're asking. Are you asking if we would call the time period from 10am-3 pm "midday"? There's likely no specific term for the time between 10 and 3... 10 am is in the morning and 3 pm is in the afternoon. – Catija Feb 25 '16 at 4:02

Can I rephrase the original sentence as:

"The observation is only done during the day, from 10 AM to 03 PM."

Numbers aren't generally preceded with 0 when telling time. But other than that, the sentence is normal.

But you are giving a general range of "done during the day", which usually suggests "during daylight hours". It's common knowledge that 10 AM to 3 PM is "daytime" (on most of the planet). So this is redundant, and mentioning "during the day" really just raises questions... such as "why not 4 PM?" and "why not 9 AM?"

So you might just say:

  • "The observation takes place from 10 AM to 3 PM."
