10^50 is 1 followed by 50 zeros.

10^50 - 74 = 999...926

The 9s occur 50-2 = 48 times.

Sum of digits = 48*9+6+2 = 440

I got C.

10^50 has 1 followed by 50 zeroes.
10^50 - 74 has 48 9's with 26 at the last two places.
sum of the digits = 48*9 + 8 = 440.

OA is C.

Thanks guys. I was trying 48*9 + 26 and coming up with no match, I guess I must call it a day.

10^2-74=100-74 = 26
10^3-74=1,000-74 = 926
10^4-74=10,000-74 = 9926
.

.
10^50-74= fortyeight 9's and 26= 48X9+26= the last digit is zero so it should be 440.
