Hint: Here we have to use the values of trigonometric ratios for a particular angle. And we have to use one property that is multiplication of anything with 0 is always 0.

As you can see in $\cos {1^ \circ } \cdot \cos {2^ \circ } \cdot \cos {3^ \circ }.......\cos {180^ \circ }$
It is product of cosine of all angle from ${1^ \circ }$ to ${180^ \circ }$
In which ${30^ \circ },{45^ \circ },{60^ \circ },{90^ \circ }$ etc, most angles come as you know the value of the cosine of these angles.
AS you know the value of
$\cos {30^ \circ } = \dfrac{{\sqrt 3 }}{2},\cos {45^ \circ } = \dfrac{1}{{\sqrt 2 }},\cos {60^ \circ } = \dfrac{1}{2},\cos {90^ \circ } = 0$
We can write question like this
$\Rightarrow \cos {1^ \circ } \cdot \cos {2^ \circ } \cdot \cos {3^ \circ }......\cos {30^ \circ }....\cos {45^ \circ }....\cos {60^ \circ }.....\cos {90^ \circ }.....\cos {180^ \circ }$
All values are in multiply so you know value of $\cos {90^ \circ } = 0$
$\Rightarrow \cos {1^ \circ } \cdot \cos {2^ \circ } \cdot \cos {3^ \circ }......\cos {30^ \circ }....\cos {45^ \circ }....\cos {60^ \circ }..... \times 0 \times .....\cos {180^ \circ }$
As you know the multiple of 0 from any number then result comes to 0
$\Rightarrow 0$
Note: Whenever you come to these type of problem you have to use known value of trigonometric angle (like $\sin {30^ \circ },\tan {45^ \circ }$ etc) and try to use these values in equation after some rearrangement then you can easily get answer.
