A - 200

B - 240

C - 250

D - 320

Answer : C

Explanation

Let the number of students in the class be 100.
∴ Number of students in Biology = 72 and number of students in Maths = 44.
∴ Number of students opting for both the subjects = 72 + 44  100 = 16
When 16 students opt for both the subjects, total number of students = 100
∴ When 40 students took both the subjects, total number of students = (100/16)*40 = 250
