The question is 12:00PM. So, bonanov must be right -- b/c it is the end of the morning

Why is the letter g like 12:00 pm? My 4th grader has me stumped.

My instinct was that they are both 6 upside down... the 6 - g rotation works, and on an analogue clock, 6 is 12 upside down.... so long as you ignore the minute hand.

But I like the morning answer.

Actually that is not accurate. 12:00 P.M is the start of the afternoon. The end of morning is 11:59.99 A.M. What the question really should say is what does G have in common with 12 Noon. Noon is not P.M or A.M. A.M means Ante Meridian which in English is before midday and P.M is Post Meridian meaning after midday. So I retract the beginning of the statement thats its not accurate. But to what the question is referring to G and 12:00 P.M have nothing in common cause 12:00 P.M doesn't exist.
