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.

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.

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.
