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.

 Age Population $17$ 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.
