Hello everyone,
If I want to know what time the alarm clock will start ringing, what questions should I use?

1) What time did you set your alarm clock for?
2) What time did you set up your alarm clock for?
3) For what hour did you set your alarm clock?
4) What hour did you set your alarm clock for?

Thanks a lot :) !

    1) What time did you set your alarm clock for? -> :thumbsup:
    2) What time did you set up your alarm clock for? :thumbsdown:
    3) For what hour did you set your alarm clock? -> Very old-fashioned; 200 years out of date.
    4) What hour did you set your alarm clock for? -> Very old-fashioned; 200 years out of date and even then this would not have been idiomatic.

    In respect of 3 and 4, in the past, "hour" was a synonym of "time" in this context.
