2. 4:05 is equivalent to 3:65
3:65 - 2:15 = 1:50

think of it as a subtraction problem, where each column is 60's instead of 10's (because of 60 minutes in an hour)

4 05
-2 15

you can't subtract 15 from 5, so you borrow a 60 from the hour column:

3 65
- 2 15
--------
1 50

check:
2 hours from 2:15 is 4:15
but, 4:05 is ten minutes earlier than 4:15, so she watched for only 1:50
