As the earth rotates from west to east, those places that lie east of Greenwich are ahead than the places that lie to the west of Greenwich. The earth rotates 1o in four minute. Thus if Lucknow is located in the east of Greenwich at 820E, we will multiply 82 by 4 which will be 328 minutes or 5 hrs and 28 minutes. Therefore, time at Lucknow is 5 hrs and 28 min. ahead of London (since Lucknow is located to the east of Greenwich). So if the time in London is 12: 00 pm, we will add 5 hrs and 28 minutes to it which will be 5: 28 in the evening.
Therefore, it will be 5:28 pm in the evening when it is 12:00 pm in London.
