Let assume total no. Of females = F
Total no. Of males = M
Total no. Of students = T
It’s F + M = T

It’s given that
F/8 = T/12
F/8 = (M+F)/12

While solving we get
M/F = 1/2

Hence answer is 1:2

Am I missing something???

Solving:

f/8 = m+f/12

12f=8m+8f
3f = 2m + 2f
So shouldn't f = 2m
ie the ratio is 1:2 [f/m] and hence 2:1 [m/f] ?
