Question: Number of teachers are School = ?

Let, Teacher = 100x
Male teachers = 25x
Female teachers = 75x
Academic Staff = Non Academic Staff = 50x

Statement 1: Exactly 14 of the teachers at the school are males who are non-academic staff.

Since we don't know what fraction of total teachers/Male teachers are non academic so this number 14 can NOT be equated with any function of x hence
NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: There are 32 more female teachers than male teachers at the school

i.e. 75x - 25x = 50x = 32

i.e. 100x = 64
SUFFICIENT

Answer: Option B
