Hint: Here, the population corresponding to \[18 - 44\] years was not considered as the only answer to the people who are \[44\] years old or younger because the population that will be considered will be corresponding to all the values below \[44\] years of age.

Complete step by step solution:
We are given the table represent Population by age groups
The figures in the table are given in thousands.

AgePopulation
\[17\] years and under\[63,376\]
\[18 - 44\] years\[86,738\]
\[45 - 64\]\[43,845\]
\[65\]\[24,054\]


The people who are \[44\] years old or younger are \[15,01,14,000\]
So, as we look in the table mentioned above, the population under \[44\] years will be the one that consists of the population corresponding to the range of \[17\] years and under and also the population corresponding to the age range of \[18 - 44\] years. Therefore, the population corresponding to \[17\] years and under is \[6,33,76,000\] and the population corresponding to \[18 - 44\] years is \[8,67,38,000\].
The answer in thousands can be obtained by adding \[63,376\] thousand and \[86,738\] thousand. The result is \[150,114\] thousand, which is \[150,114,000\].
Thus, the population which is \[44\] years old or younger, in total, are \[150,114,000\].
So, the correct answer is “\[150,114,000\].”.

Note: We note that, the two values will be the part of the population that will come under \[44\] years old or younger.
The sum of the two values corresponding to the two age groups that will be people who are \[44\] years old or younger (\[6,33,76,000\]and \[8,67,38,000\]) will be \[150,114,000\].
The population corresponding to the other age ranges was not considered because they were above the value or age of \[44\] years. Hence, would not come under the younger age range.
