Mr. A. This is assuming all 3 participants have the same experience, nutrients, genetics/potential, program etc. Sleep is one of the most important things next to nutrition when it comes to building your body. Also prevents alzheimer's and improves immunity.

If you’re dieting, but not getting sufficient sleep, 70% of all the weight you lose will come from lean muscle, not fat – our body becomes resistant at giving up fat when it’s underslept"

-Sleep Expert and Neuroscientist Dr. Matthew Walker

Highly recommend his book Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams.
