Ans is C.

Given :

There were 36.000 hardback copies of a certain novel sold before the paperback version was issued. -> H1 = 36 K

From the time the first paperback copy was sold until the last copy of the novel was sold, 9 times as many paperback copies as hardback copies were sold. -> P = 9H2

total of 441.000 copies of the novel were sold in all -> H1 + P + H2 = 441K

Solving,

H1 + P + H2 = 441K ........................( H1 = 36 K)
P + H2 = 441K - 36K = 405K
9H2 + H2 = 405K.............................(P = 9H2)
H2 = 40.5K

Total hardback = H1 + H2 = 36K + 40.5K = 76.5K
P = total - total hardback
P = 441 - 76.5K
P = 364.5K

C.
