    You haven't told us if the sign is posted on the old ticket office or the new ticket office (it makes a big difference to B and C).
    From 12th January = Starting 12th January and continuing into the future.

    Yes, this is from a test and I am inclined to the answer A

    You haven't told us if the sign is posted on the old ticket office or the new ticket office (it makes a big difference to B and C).
    From 12th January = Starting 12th January and continuing into the future.
    It is written on ( a ) zoo ticket office. New or old I don't know

    A) could be posted on either office, but having both "now" and "from 12th January" isn't good.
    B) changed to "This ticket office will be closed from January 12th." is correct if the sign is on the old office, but nonsense on the new office.
    C) seems to apply to the case where the sign is on the new office though it is wrong.
