- 14
- 16
- 18
- 12

**Answer: (4) 12**

**Explanation:-
**Let the number of ducks be X and the number of buffaloes be Y

The total number of legs is 24 more than twice of the number of heads.

Then, 4 Y + 2 X = 2 (X + Y) + 24

4Y + 2 X = 2 X + 2 Y + 24

4 Y – 2 Y + 2 X – 2 X = 24

2 Y = 24

Y = 24/2

Y = 12

Then, the number of buffaloes Y = 12.

Hence, the answer is (4) 12.
