"while the other gains the same amount during that time"
2.
Is the clock a 24 hour clock or 12 hour clock?

Assuming the other gains also 2 minutes at every hour, and the clock is a twelve hour clock, then they will show the same time when one loses 6 hours and the other one gains 6 hours.

How long would the first clock lose 6 hours?
