A

12.1%

B

18.1%

C

38.1%

D

8.1%

Answer

Although India has only 2.4 per cent of the world’s land area. But its share of the global species diversity is an impressive 8.1 percent. That is what makes our country one of the 12 megadiversity countries of the world. Nearly 45,000 species of plants and twice as many of animals have been recorded from India. 
So, the correct answer is '8.1%'.
