Ans B.

As question says – holding period was reduced by one quarter each time. In 2004 – third revision.

In 1993 holding period – 360 days ( four quarters). One quarter – $\frac{1}{4} \times 360 = 90$. 

[quarter – each of four equal or corresponding parts into which something is or can be divided.]

First Time = $360 – 90 = 270$  (reduced by one quarter)

Second Time = $270 – 90 = 180$

Third Time = $180– 90 = 90$
