The percentage that the investment and subsidiary revenues combined
to the total is $$\frac{246+53}{1052} * 100 = \frac{299}{1052}*100$$

Approximations work best for these kind of problems
This is approximately $$\frac{300}{1050}*100 = \frac{6}{21}*100$$ which is around 30%! The closest answer is Option D(28.4%)

Note that Investments+Subsidiary is a bit less than 300 while total is a bit more than 1000.
So they make up a bit less than 30%.

Total revenue is 753 + 53 + 246 =1052.

Investments and subsidiaries is 53 + 246 = 299 or about 300.

So Investments and Subsidiary revenues combined constitute 299/1052 = 0.284, or 28.4% of total revenue.
