Let the number of girls joining the class on Tuesday be X and twice the number of boys leaves the class. Let it be 2X.
Now, \(\frac{{8+X}}{{20-2X}}\) = \(\frac{7}{4}\)
Solving we get 32+4X = 140-14X
18X = 108.
So X = 6.
Hence the number of boys leaving the class on Tuesday is 2X = 12.
D is the answer.

Monday: G:B= 8:20
Tuesday : G:B =7:4
As given #girls will increase from Mon to Tue. Tue day ratio is 7:4
=> this indicates #girls on Tues can be 14, lets try with 14,
=> #girls increased by 6, #boys decreased by 12,
=> Tue ratio 14: 8 =7:4
=> Ans 12, D
