The clock's minute hand turns 360 deg in 60 mins (1 hr)
Therefore in 24 minutes it turns
24*360/60 = 144 deg

The clock's hour hand turns 1/12 of 360 deg in 1 hr (i.e. it moves from 12 to 1 in 1 hr) That is, it turns 30 deg in 60 mins.
Therefore in 24 mins it turns
24*30/60 = 12 deg

Therefore the angle between them = 144-12 = 132 degrees.
