THE THREE CLOCKS.





(Money Puzzles)
On Friday, April 1, 1898, three new clocks were all set going precisely
at the same time--twelve noon. At noon on the following day it was found
that clock A had kept perfect time, that clock B had gained exactly one
minute, and that clock C had lost exactly one minute. Now, supposing
that the clocks B and C had not been regulated, but all three allowed to
go on as they had begun, and that they maintained the same rates of
progress without stopping, on what date and at what time of day would
all three pairs of hands again point at the same moment at twelve
o'clock?
