The train leaves from New York City every 40 minutes from Boardman station. A man told John Watson that the train had left 15 minutes ago and the next train to New York City will leave at 9:40 p.m.

At what time, man convey this information to John Watson?

Time of John Watson last missed the train = 8:40 PM - 40 min = 8:00 PM As this information has been given to John Watson 15 minutes after the train has already left, the man gave the information at 8:00 p.m. + 15 min = 8:15 PM
