C++ Class Compositon

Create a class that simulates an alarm clock. In this class you should:
- Store time in hours, minutes, and seconds. Note if time is AM or PM. (Hint: You should have separate private members for the alarm and the clock. Do not forget to have a character variable representing AM or PM.)
- Initialize the clock to a specified time.
- Allow the clock to increment to the next second. (Hint: You need to take into account things like if the clock's time is 11:59:59 AM and you increment by a second, the time will be 12:00:00 PM. You may need to consider some iterated if statements.)
- Set the alarm and have the alarm print out "WAKE UP" when the set time is reached. (Hint: You may wish to create a private function that provides the wished-for printout when the alarm time is reached and the alarm clock is on.)
- Display the present time.
- Use the class in a program that uses the functions requiring displaying of time and setting of the alarm.
Include 2 constructors. One constructor should be the default constructor that will initialize the object to 12:00:00 AM. The second constructor should take parameters for hours, minutes, seconds, and AM/PM. Both constructors will provide the private members with the time. In addition, have both constructors set the alarm clock as off. (You will need a Boolean variable that determines whether the alarm is on or off). The function or method you use to set the alarm will set the alarm on.
