about "UTC" UTC stands for Universal Time Coordinated. As i knew, coordinate is an adjective or past tense verb. my question is why put it after the noun "Time"? is that logical or right? sorry for my ignorance and Thx in advance.

You're right in that typically adjectives are placed before the nouns that they modify, but oftentimes people place them afterwards when referring to organizations, institutions, companies, etc. It's the same thing when you see company names ending in Ltd. or "Limited." As for why this is custom, I really have no idea.

Coordinated = past participle-adjective
