      Daylight Saving Time (also referred to as Daylight Savings Time and abbreviated DST) is a change in the standard time with the purpose of making better use of daylight. Clocks are generally advanced by a certain amount during DST, meaning that the Sun rises one hour later in the morning and sets one hour later in the evening. Although it has only been used for about hundred years, the idea of DST was first conceived many years before.

    • says

      Binod, there’s a good chance for 47.6 marks. Be optimistic :)

      The formula says IF first cell value is greater than second cell THEN subtract second cell from first cell OTHERWISE subtract first cell from second cell.

      So, in both cases the smaller value will be subtracted from larger value to result positive number.
