equivalent in A makes it little awkward.

equivalent means aa person or thing equal to another in value, measure, force or effect.

in A if in place of equivalent, equal was used then this might be a valid option.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Option A is wrong because "the number of male students currently enrolled in medical school" is not the best way to convey the intended meaning. The quote suggests that "the number" is enrolled rather than "male students".
Choice B corrects this error.

Correct me if I’m wrong - “the number of female students...the number of male students currently enrolled..” isn’t a proper comparison, hence A is wrong.

B - is a proper comparison with amount of “male students vs female students” and as..as idiom use is proper as well.

You are right, partly. Numbers cannot be equivalent to each other. We use the word equivalent to show a large degree of similarity.

For example,

The amount of time I spent on preparing for the GMAT is equivalent to that spent on learning how to code.

This is fine because time is a non-countable quantity.

However if you say something like:

The number of hours I spent on preparing for the GMAT is equivalent to that spent on learning how to code.

This is NOT correct.

5 cannot be equivalent to 5 or 5.0000001

5 must be equal to 5 and unequal to 6.
