Standard Time vs Military Time(AM/PM)?Standard time and military time both have their own benefits and drawbacks. Standard time is what most people are used to and it is easier to read and understand. Military time can be difficult to understand at first, but it is based on a 24-hour clock that never changes, so it is less confusing in the long run. For example, if you wanted to say 1:00 pm with standard time, you would say 1300 with military time.
Standard time can be more useful for everyday tasks such as scheduling appointments, making plans, or setting alarms. It is also easier when working with other people who may not be familiar with military time. On the other hand, military time may be preferred when dealing with large-scale projects or when working on an international level since it eliminates possible confusion over different countries’ local times.
Ultimately, which one is better comes down to personal preference and what type of task you are doing. However, having knowledge of both time systems can be beneficial in some cases as each has its own unique advantages for specific situations.
