This type of question is best posted in the certifications forum.

They will most likely spell out very clearly if they want you to set the clock. Its not like setting a line speed is something they are going give points for at the CCIE level.

In general you should always be able to tell because you can only set the clock on a DCE interface. Show controllers will indicate the type of cable you have. The other option is to attempt to issue the set command. Some routes will give warning on DTE or just take the command but ignore it.

If you do a show controllers would show you whether the interface is DCE or DTE
