Note: Subscription in arrear for the previous year is received to the extent of 6,000, so we have to find out the number of subscriptions outstanding for the year ending 31/03/2018
Total outstanding amount – The received amount
20,000- 6,000
= 14,000/- (Till outstanding for the year ending 31/03/2018)

There is a difference of Rs. 14,000 in the answer to this question because they treated the whole amount of opening subscription in arrear Rs. 20,000 as received during the year but according to the question only Rs. 6,000 was received during the current year(as on 31/03/2019)
