**Hint:**First of all, read the question very carefully to understand what information is given & what has been asked as an answer. Note down the given data in the question. As here, quantity of water a single bucket can contain is given and quantity of water in certain no. of buckets is to be found, it can be obtained simply by multiplication.

**Complete step-by-step answer:**

Amount of water the bucket can hold = \[16.35{\text{ }}L\]

$\therefore $for $12$ such buckets, amount of water they can hold = \[16.35\; \times 12{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}196.2{\text{ }}Lts.\]

Hence, $12$ buckets can hold $196.2$ litres of water.

**Additional Information:**

Even after it is a very basic question, where we just need to get volume of water \[12\] buckets can contain , that can be obtained simply by multiplying no. of buckets with volume of water a bucket can contain , but we also need to have some knowledge about the basic operation used here i.e. , multiplication .

Multiplication is one the four basic mathematical operations which are used almost in every numerical & daily life too. It can also be considered as repetitive addition i.e. if we multiply a no. by another, we can also get the same answer by adding first no. for other no. of times.

**Note:**In this type of problem, for multiple buckets/multiple things, if value of a single entity is given. The solution can be obtained by simply multiplying the value of a single entity to the number of things required. Do the calculation carefully so that to ensure you get an accurate answer.

* Multiplication of two positive terms gives a positive value.

* Multiplication of two negative terms gives a positive value.

*Multiplication of one positive and one negative terms gives a negative value.
