Answer:   B) 20 min past 7pm on wednesday

Explanation:

This sunday morning at 8:00 AM, the watch is 5 min. Slow, and the next sunday at 8:00PM it becomes 5 min 48 sec fast.  The watch gains $5+54860$ min in a time of  (7×24)+12 = 180 hours.

$545min→180hours$

5min ->

$8313hrs=72hrs+1113hrs=3days+11hrs+20min$

So the correct time will be shown on wednesday at 7:20 PM
