understanding how rtc works

hi there.

im trying to turn on my light relay on for 2 different timing.

why would it not turn on like so? how would you advise me to improve this part?

/****set LIGHT TIMER ****/
  if ((now.hour() == 17) && (now.minute() == 51) && (now.minute() == 53))
  {
    digitalWrite (light, HIGH);
  }
  else
  {
    digitalWrite (light, LOW);
  }

this are the full code.

(now.minute() == 51) && (now.minute() == 53)

?

dannable:

(now.minute() == 51) && (now.minute() == 53)

?

im trying to turn it on for minute 51 and minute 53.

for example 16:51 and 16:53

If you want it to turn on for 2 separate minutes

  if (now.hour() == 17 && (now.minute() == 51 || now.minute() == 53) )
