Are the scripts marked as executable and does the 1st line reflect
location of Perl? If not I say that u need to add /usr/bin/perl
the path to the scripts.

system "/usr/bin/perl /root/bin/A.pl";
system "/usr/bin/perl /root/bin/B.pl";


Yes B & C scripts are marked as executable and the first line of the
script have the path to perl.
The /etc/corntab file has an path variable that points to /usr/bin
shouldn't that cover /usr/bin/perl?
