very wordy and confusing question ...

given
students + faculty = 12,000
and students = 5* faculty
so students = 10,000 and faculty = 2,000
male faculty +200= female faculty
so female faculty = 1100 and male faculty 900

also 6425 = males students + male faculty
male students = 10,000-female students
so
10,000-female students-900=6425
female students = 4475
IMO C
