Since you did not specify how long the eruptions last, I assume the question has to do with the odds of the sight of the beginning of an eruption for A, B, or C.

In a 12 hour period, A will erupt 6 times, B 3 times, and C 2 times. A total of 11 eruptions. So the odds of seeing A first is 6/11, B first is 4/11, and C first is 2/11.
