The hands of a clock coincide 11 times in every 12 hours(Since between 11 and 1 they coincide only once,i.e at 12 o clock).therefore the hands of the clock coincide 22 times a day.

I think the hands of the clock coincide "exactly" only twice a day...coz for all other times there is a slight angle difference bw the hour n the minute hand..except at 12 wen the difference is 0 degrees...

The clock hands concide with each other 24 times. since we have 24 hrs in a day. after 1 o clock hands of  the clock concide,after 2 o clock hands of  the clock concide,after 3 o clock hands of  the clock concide,.........similarly at 24th hr both hands concide.So this proves that the clock hands concide 24 times.
