At 12:24
-minute hand will be at 24*6 = 144 degrees from position of 12.
- Hour hand will move by 2*6 = 12 degree during the same time

So the difference between the two hands will be 144-12 = 132 degrees.

hour hand moves 5 minutes when minute hand moves 60 minutes. Hence when minute hand moved 24 minutes, hour hand moved 24 *5 / 60 i.e. 2 minutes.

I read somewhere there is a direct formula to solve this question..2)
Angle between m and h hand is ( 11/2) *m – 30 * h
can this be apply here? if yes should i take the value of h =12 ..taking this I am not getting the answer..

You just should substitute h=0 in it, not h=12.

General formula is:

|\frac{11}{2}m - 30h|

If the result is greater than 180 degrees, subtract it from 360 to get the included angle.

The above can be derived from the fact that:
In 1 minute:
Hour hand moves 0.5 degrees,
Minute hand moves 6 degrees.

AND

In an hour:
Hour hand moves 30 degrees,
Minute hand moves 360 degrees.

Hope it's clear.
