Well, the first one is the easiest. We just want 24-choose-12 or \[\binom{24}{12}=2704156\]As for the second one, do you have a guess as to what we have to do?

idk

We need to choose 5 biographies out of a set of 10, and choose 7 fiction from a set of 14. Can you do each of these parts separately? How many ways can I choose 5 biographies out of 10 total?
