Thread: Quiz of the day

    Angry Quiz of the day

    Imagine the digital clock , how many times will the clock display three or more of the same number in a row over the course of one day?

    In case you were wondering, the clock displays time on a 12-hour scale, not military time.


    For those who already know the answer, please dont spoil it.

    wrong

    hint : it must be in a row, for example : 0111 or 1110 but not 1011.

    If it is a 12 hour display, it should be 1200 instead of 0000, isn't it?
