I think it must be the palindrome times 9:59 and 10:01 for which there is the least time gap which is 2 minutes. All other palindrome times within 12 hr format are atleast 10-11 minutes apart.

On a regular 12-hour digital clock how many times would the same three digits in a row be displayed (e.g. 1:11,11:12,12:22) in one day?

I noticed that in my big wall clock, there is a time when the minute and hour clock are exactly between one and two. Also I notice both hands lie on top of each other.

What is the time I am talking about ?

A clock has 60 lines on it; one at each minute interval. Everyone knows that the hour and minute hands point to the same line at 12:00. Can you figure out what time it is for these situations?

  1. The hour hand is exactly on one line, and the minute hand is exactly on the NEXT line.

  2. The hour hand is exactly on one line, and the minute hand is exactly on the PREVIOUS line.
