This riddle is driving me crazy I know it's as plain as the nose on my face but I still can't figure it out because I'm trying to be too logical or analytical more to the point.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
There are reasons why it could be any of the three given options:
0024is "Two Zeroes, Two, Four"
2024is "Two, Zero, Two, Four"
0044is "Two Zeroes, Two Fours"
Without knowing more about the context or the person asking the question, there's no real way to determine which one it is.
As DqwertyC states, all could be correct (is "all of the above" a valid answer?).
However, if I had to pick one, it would be B, as considering the phrasing of the question ("two zero and two four") and that it does not use plurals ("two zeros" or "two fours"), B is the closest match as both A and C should properly be "two zeros" and then a description of the second half - either "two four" for A or "two fours" for C.
This is almost like a language test.
The answer could also be "none of the above" as the question is "which one has", and there are no ones, much less any that meet the requested criteria. Some riddles are like that.
'C' because it's correct twice
Which one has two zero and two four?
Using digits for counters and words for symbols (and ignoring plurals):
- A has either 2 zero and two four - internally inconsistent OR zero zero and two four - incorrect
- B has two zero and two four - correct
- C has 2 zero and 2 four - correct
Using addition (where 'and' represents 'plus'):
- A has two zero plus zero four - incorrect
- B has two zero zero zero plus two four - incorrect
- C has two zero plus two four - correct
I think it is C because it is a play on words. Which one has two 0 and two 4.
If they wanted the numbers to be taken as a list like in B they could have simply added the and before the last number.
Which one has two, zero, two, and four?
A plays into both B and C
Which one has 2 zero, two and four?
None of them. The correct answer is $2044$, two zero and two fours.
