When telling time, why isn't los used if the hour ends with an "o"? Is there no difference between feminine and masculine when telling time?
I was using the La fecha y la hora flashcards and noticed the word las is used in front of every hour given. Why isn't los used if the hour ends with an "o"?
Because the la or las refers to the feminine noun "hora or horas". Las is not used when it is one o clock, "es la una"
A good way to remember that is to keep in mind that the question for "What time is it?" is "¿Qué hora es?" which is literally "What hour is it?" and "hour" is a feminine noun!
