Identification of parts of speech

Hello, 

In regards to the sentence: Ils quittent leur travail à 19h, is the following identification of different articles of speech correct: 

(subject)Ils (verb)quittent (indirect object pronoun)leur (direct object)travail (preposition)à (??)19h 

I am not sure what article of speech does "19h" come under?

Hi Rahul,

Just one correction 'leur' is a possessive adjective here ( their ).

See the following relevant Kwiziq lesson 

https://progress.lawlessfrench.com/revision/grammar/use-notre-nos-votre-vos-leur-leurs-to-say-our-your-and-their-possessive-adjectives

and 'à 19 heures'

answers the question

at what time or when?

which is a 'complément circonstanciel de temps' 

Could be 'le soir' le jour suivant' etc

I hope this helps!
