i'm not sure i get what it's asking for, but 90 is the number you start with and 16 is what you end with and the % is what you are trying to find

What you are saying is (as you have worded the question) - if you do a test of 90 questions and get 16 right - what percentage did you get? That is 16/90 X 100 to get a percentage. This is 17.7777 repeating which would round off to 18%, as this is not one of the multiple choices then the only thing to assume is that the question is worded incorrectly.

i get roughly 17%. i was taught "is over of", so 16 is what percent of 90, 16 over 90= .17777777778. then multiply by 100 17.7777777778%

you need to see a tutor. Or get extra help from your teacher. The whole of the problem is the number that you are trying to take the percent from.
