B.

A cannot give the answer because it talks about total TVs in city X and not the number of TVs switched on.
B gives data for the rest 56% of TVs which are not tuned to that program.
hence,

56% of X = 56000.

X represents total number of TVs switched on at that time.

we can calculate X and hence 44% of X.
