minutes?

Hi,

In the attached file, the answer key says that the answers to the points number 6 and 8 are as follows:

6. three minutes past one.
8. seventeen minutes past four.

While for the other points like the point 5, it says:

5. twenty-five past eight.

My questions are:

1. Why was the word 'minutes' used in points 6 & 8 and not in 5?

2. Is it possible to say 6 & 8 without 'minutes' as follows?

6. three past one.
8. seventeen past four.

3. Is it possible to say 5 with minutes?
5. twenty-five minutes past eight.
