Six heures cinquante?
The question was

Why was six heures cinquante marked incorrect?

Hi William ,
Was it in the evening? In which case it would be dix-huit heures cinquante , or sept heures moins dix...

Bonjour William !
The question is asking specifically to say "it is ten to seven", which is a more complex structure than simply saying "it is six fifty". It's also much more colloquial to use the "to" structure in French, just like it is in English, hence us testing that specific expression :)
I hope that answers your question :)
Bonne journée !
