Given that numerator of a fraction is $7$ less than its denominator

Therefore, $x+7=y$ ------(1)

Given that if the denominator increased by $9$ and the numerator by $2$ then the fraction is $32โ$

Therefore, $y+9x+2โ=32โ$

$โน3x+6=2y+18$

$โน3xโ2y=12$

$โน3xโ2(x+7)=12$

$โนxโ14=12$

$โนx=26$

$โนy=26+7=33$ (from (1))

Therefore, the fraction is $3326โ$
