1. If the number of girls and number of adults is 12, the number of boys would be 4. SUFFICIENT.

2. The only possible count of boys less than 7 would be 4. Sufficient.

Since we are dealing with people and there has to at least be 1 person in the museum, to make the ratio correct the answer must follow the formulas below.

n is a integer constant through all equations
boys = n * 4
girls = n * 7
adults = n * 5

1. 12 girls and adults --> n = 1 --> boys = 4 --> 16 people (Suff)

2. There must be at least one person at the museum, therefore n at least equals 1. Since there is less than 7 boys, n can only equal 1 and we get the same number of people as before, 16 people.
