Percentage share of the revenue contributed by Prime to the total revenues of Mola for the entire duration of 4 months

$=\left ( \frac{1 \times\textrm{Rides given by Prime in 4 months duration}}{1 \times \textrm{Total number of rides in the 4 month duration}} \right ) \times100\%$

$=\left ( \frac{75+180+120+90}{170+320+215+190+110+220+180+70+75+180+120+90} \right )\times 100\%$

$=\left ( \frac{465}{1940} \right )\times 100\%$

$=23.97\%$

$\therefore$ Option B $23.97$
