For Subcompact car, we can observe that out of the five values,
2 values are exactly 0.4
1 value is 0.35
2 values are between 0.3 and 0.35

So the average will be approx 0.35 or 0.36

For midsize car,
4 values are between 0.45 and 0.5
1 value is about 0.55

So the average will be approx 0.47 or 0.48

So taking the two answers are 0.36 and 0.48:
Required percentage = (0.48-0.36)/0.48 * 100 = 25%

Hence answer is C
