    Answer: (2) 42 

    Explanation:-
     Let required number of boys = X
    1 man = 2 boys  
    (12 men + 18 boys)  
    (12 x 2 + 18) boys = 42 boys
     21 men + X boys a (21 x 2 + X) boys = (42+X) boys
        [50 X 9 X 1 X (42 + x)] = (60 X  X 2 X 42)
      (42 + X) = (37800/450)
     =  42 + X = 84  

    => X = 42.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (2) 42.
