Thanks for your responce and help, I don't think so it's proportional. Since the answer is 360 revolutions.

And putting them in proportions doesn't give the correct answer.

A friend told me this solution;

Find the circumference of both the wheels by formula 2 pi r:

1st wheel: 94.2 inches.

2nd wheel: 62.8 inches.

Now multiply the circumference of the 1st wheel by revolutions:

94.2*240 = 22608 inches.

This would be the otal distance traveled by wheels.

Now divide the distance by the circumference of second wheel,

you'll get no. of revolutions:

No. of revolutions: 22608/62.8

No. of revolutions: 360 revolutions.
