Wild Magic Surges may only trigger after casting a sorcerer spell of 1st level or higher. By default, sorcerers cannot cast spells as rituals, but if they take the Ritual Caster feat, they can (for the list of a chosen class, including sorcerer).

There are 4 ritual spells on the sorcerer spell list: Detect Magic, Comprehend Languages, Water Breathing, and Water Walk.

Provided that a Wild Magic sorcerer takes the Ritual Caster feat with the sorcerer class option, can they then trigger Wild Magic Surges upon casting any of these 4 spells as a ritual?

Yes, they can trigger Wild Magic Surges in this way

Performing a ritual is still casting a spell (you even have to take the Cast a Spell action every turn). Since the Wild Magic Surge feature does not limit it to "when you cast a sorcerer spell with a 1st or higher level spell slot", any form of casting a sorcerer spell can trigger it.
