You can try the following code:

Edit - changed the code as per requirement

function whichOne() {
    document.getElementById("center").style.textAlign =;

document.getElementById('left').onclick = whichOne;
document.getElementById('right').onclick = whichOne;
document.getElementById('center').onclick = whichOne;
<table border="1">
     <td style="width: 15%;" id="left">1</td>
     <td style="width: 70%; text-align: center;" id="center">2</td>
     <td style="width: 15%;" id="right">3</td>
