We need the exact number of boys and girls in the class to answer how many more boys.

Statement 1: Tells us the total is 10. Nothing about the relation between the numbers of boys and girls, so insufficient.
Statement 2: Tells us if girls = g, boys = g cubed. But we don't know the exact number, so insufficient.

Combing the two we have g + g cubed = 10, the only possible value for a cube within 10 is 8. Therefore, there are 6 more boys than girls.

Will wait for the OA.
