10^2 - 74 = 26
10^3 - 74 = 926
10^4 - 74 = 9926 (no. of nine = 4-2 = 2)
total no. of 9 = (50-2) * 9 = 432 + 2 + 6 = 440

Hence, C

Base 10 numbers are written using integers from 0 to 9 and can be converted into base 10. Fro example, 74 = 7*10^1 + 4*10^0, etc.

base 10 notation = counting system with 10 digits (e.g. 01234567890)

as an alternative example:
base 2 notation = counting system with 2 digits (e.g. 01) - commonly referred to as binary
