The sum of the non-prime numbers between 40 and 50, non-inclusive, are {42, 44, 45, 46, 48, 49}. 6 times 40 something is approx north of 240 and Hence the answer is (C) 274

Once we get the Non prime numbers, no need to sum all. Just find the sum of Unit digits, we will get 4 at the end. Hence, answer C

sum of consecutive integers from 41 to 49, inclusive ====> (A1 + An)/2 * # of terms = (41 + 49)/2 * 9 = 45 *9 = 405

sum of non-prime numbers b/w 40 and 50, non inclusive ===> 405 - 131 (i.e., 41 + 43 +47, being the prime #s in the range) =274
