In this paper we have studied about the present Solar Cycle 24 in comparison with previous solar cycles. The progression of present Solar Cycle 24 at late 2008 to 2015, indicates that the solar minimum is similar to the Dalton Minimum. The predictions of Solar dynamo, ¬sunspot numbers are mostly used as basic solar activity index which is responsible for variation in space-weather. It is observed that the solar minimum between solar cycle 23 and 24 during the period of 2007 to 2009 has been longest at least since for the last 100 years and it looks that Sun is going to the next super centurial minimum solar cycle. Our aim is to investigate the facts of solar activity behavior during the period of present solar cycle 24.
