2 minutes every 8 hours, so 6 min every day.



If Alicia's mum sets the alarm on Sunday night at 11:00 pm then Monday 7am is 8 hours

So the alarm will actually ring at 7:02

After 1 day on Tuesday morning it will ring at at 7:08 am

On wednesday, at 7:14

On Thursday, at 7:20

On Friday, at 7:26


So Alicia's mom will set the alarm for 7:00 - 26 min = 6:34 am on Sunday night
