The task is to print the system’s current day and time in the following format(Time in hours, minutes and milliseconds).

Approach:

Use getDay() function to create an array of days in a week. It returns a number of day like 0 for Sunday, 1 for Monday and so on). Convert it into AM or PM using ternary operator. Use getHours() method to get the hour value between 0 to 23. It returns an integer value. Minutes and milliseconds were printed using getMinutes() and getMilliseconds() functions respectively. Example:
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <title>
        print current day and time
    </title>
</head>
  
<body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var myDate = new Date();
        var myDay = myDate.getDay();
        
        // Array of days.
        var weekday = ['Sunday', 'Monday', 'Tuesday',
            'Wednesday', 'Thursday', 'Friday', 'Saturday'
        ];
        document.write("Today is : " + weekday[myDay]);
        document.write("<br/>");
        
        // get hour value.
        var hours = myDate.getHours();
        var ampm = hours >= 12 ? 'PM' : 'AM';
        hours = hours % 12;
        hours = hours ? hours : 12;
        var minutes = myDate.getMinutes();
        minutes = minutes < 10 ? '0' + minutes : minutes;
        var myTime = hours + " " + ampm + " : " + minutes + 
            " : " + myDate.getMilliseconds();
        document.write("\tCurrent time is : " + myTime);
    </script>
</body>
