Given Data:

P(Total) = 32
P(Students) = 24
P(Women) = 12
P(Women/Students) = 6

We can deduce the following information

P(Men) = P(Total) - P(Women) = 32-12 = 20
P(Men/Students) = P(Students) - P(Women/Students) = 24-6 = 18
P(Men/Non-Students) = P(Men) - P(Men/Students) = 20-18 = 2

Therefore, the total number of men who are not students is 2(Option A)

Known Information:

Total People: 32
Students : 24
Women : 12
No of women students: 6

With the given data we can derive the following information

Number of Men : Total - Number of Women = 32 - 12 = 20
Number of Male Students : Number of students - Number of female students = 24 - 6 = 18
Number of Men - Number of male students = 20 - 18 = 2

Answer : Option A

PS: It would be easier to draw a table to solve this question. Attached the image for reference.

Since 12 of the 32 people were women, 20 were men.

Since 24 are students and 6 of those students were women, 18 students were men .

Since there were a total of 20 men, and 18 of them were students, there were 20 - 18 = 2 men who were not students.

Answer: A
