Understanding time

HI everyone,

So to my understanding reading the previous answers to the questions unambiguously would mean both am and pm? 

Also I know the two different ways to say the numbers in both 12 hour and 24hour but,  and as I'm reading the responses it seems that past 6pm you would use like deux treize quatroze etc. Would I be correct and if it's past midnight would it be the same?


Thanks

Expressing the time colloquially, you use the 12-hour clock. If it's clear by context whether you are referring to am or pm time, you just say the time as is. If you want to be explicit, you add something like du matin or du soir to the time.
