    Yes, they are correct.

    correct.

    一九七四年八月九日下午四點過兩分
    一九六三年五月二十三日晚上差兩分七點
    以上的說法 (差與過的用法) 是受外語濃厚影響的例子
    除非是如下的問答
    "現在幾點了?" "四點(剛)過兩分"
    "現在什麼時候了?" "(還)差兩分七點"

    實際上 普遍的說法 只要按數字念即可
    毋庸把簡單明瞭的事情搞複雜了
    一九七四年八月九日下午四時二分
    一九六三年五月二十三日下午六時五十八分

     

    1974年8月9日下午4:02(4点零2分)
    1963年5月23日下午6:58(6点58分)

    by the way, the forms of the numbers should be unified.
