Errr... What's wrong with simply answering "Десять двадцать пять" or whatever time it is?

I was wondering about «Сколько времени?» for a while, thanks for clarifying it.
Don responds: There is nothing wrong with responding “десять двадцать пять” if you mean 10:25 a.m. It's 24-hour time, and everyone will understand it. But in colloquial time, the time that people use when they look at their personal watches, they are most likely to say “twenty-five minutes of the eleventh.” See the following entries for details.
