I have a property that I have recently sold. I lived in it for 7 years and then rented it out for 3.5 years subsequently. Now that it has been sold, do I qualify for primary residence exclusion on any portion of the capital gain? Is it pro-rata for the years that it was my primary residence, or how would I apportion it?

Yes you pro-rata it for the period lived out of the total period owned.
