crontab question for lpi 102 exam

not sure if this is correct, my notes say this:

Which of the following will run a file named myscript every 23 minutes past midnight every two hours?

A. 230-23 /2 * * * /myscript
B. 23* /0-23 * * * /myscript
C. 23@2 * * * /myscript
D. 112/0-23 * * * /myscript

I show A as correct, but I don't follow the logic.

Can someone explain this?

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

Is the 230 a typo?

That's what's in my notes, it doesn't make sense the way it is.
I'll keep digging on the web.
