Three Clocks

Three antique clocks were put up for auction. The first lost one minute in every twenty-four hours; the second lost one minute in every hour; and the third didn't go at all. Which clock would you buy if you chose the one that showed the correct time most often? (from Logic Puzzles by the Diagram Group)

The stopped clock has the correct time twice a day ( assuming it has a clock face with 12 hours on it) . The others have the correct time less than once in 24 hours. So, choose the stopped clock

That's it! Women named Rachel are great with puzzles. We have one Rachel leading with 5 puzzles solved. And Rachel H just solved her second. So, if you are looking for a girl name ... consider Rachel.
