**Hint:**For any given quadratic equation $a{x^2} + bx + c = 0$ the condition for real roots is given by $D \geqslant 0$ where $D = {b^2} - 4ac$. Using this concept we try to find the possible values of c and finally find the probability which is our required answer..

**Complete step-by-step answer:**

Question is saying that there is a number $c$ which belong to set $\left\{ {1,2,3,4,.......,9} \right\}$ and satisfy the quadratic equation ${x^2} + 4x + c = 0$ such that it has real roots

So first of all we would let the quadratic equation as we know for a given quadratic equation $a{x^2} + bx + c = 0$ has real roots then it must satisfy $D \geqslant 0$ where $D = {b^2} - 4ac$.

So here the quadratic equation is ${x^2} + 4x + c = 0$

Comparing with general quadratic equation $ax^2+bx+c=0$

We get $a=1$,$b=4$,$c=1$

Now, $D \geqslant 0$ . So

$

{b^2} - 4ac \geqslant 0 \\

{(4)^2} - 4(1)c \geqslant 0 \\

16 - 4c \geqslant 0 \\

16 \geqslant 4c \\

c \leqslant 4 \\

$

So from the quadratic equation we came to know that $c$ must be less than or equal to $4$

Now solving the above part that is of set $c$ also belongs to the set which contains $\left\{ {1,2,3,4,.......,9} \right\}$ and also we know that $c$ must be less than or equal to $4$

So here $c$ must be $c$ $\left\{ {1,2,3,4} \right\}$ it means total number of favourable cases is $4$

Now we are asked to find the probability of choosing $c$ from set $\left\{ {1,2,3,4,.......,9} \right\}$

So probability of choosing $c = \dfrac{{No.\,of\,favourable\,cases}}{{Total\,no.\,of\,cases}}$

Here total no. of cases is the total number of elements in the set that is $9$

So probability is $\dfrac{4}{9}$

**So, the correct answer is “Option D”.**

**Note:**For finding the probability we first need to find the total number of favourable cases and then divide it by total number of cases. Here the favourable cases are $4\,as\,c \leqslant 4$ and $c$ belongs to $\left\{ {1,2,3,4,.......,9} \right\}$,So here $c$ can be $1,2,3,4$.Students should remember the the condition for real roots for a quadratic equation $a{x^2} + bx + c = 0$ which is given by $D \geqslant 0$ where $D = {b^2} - 4ac$.
