A room is lit only by an LED digital 12-hour clock. At what time is the room the brightest? The darkest?

Assume no leading '0' in times where the hour is a single digit. In other words, the time is displayed as "6:32", not "06:32".

If the clock displays military time then it's a tie between 228 and 238.

Actually, in military time, 208 would be brighter still.

On most LED clocks there's an AM/PM indicator. The room would be brightest at 108 when that LED is on.
