This is not complete answer.... There are infinitely many pairs of (a, b). You should not write just the three of them as your answer, should mention the pattern
sorry

The steps are following-
Let and are two numbers and HCF = 12 then
a = 12 * x, x > 0
b = 12 * y, y > 0

Also a - b = 12, this gives x = y + 1
So, finally a = 12 * (y + 1) and b = 12 * y, y > 0

So numbers will be
(24, 12) or (12, 24)
(36, 24) or (24, 36)
(48, 36) or (48, 36)
(60, 48) or (48, 60)
and so on..
