Working hour= 24000*.3 = 7200.

Add Rs.2000.

Purchase price = Rs 7200+Rs 2000 = Rs 9200.

I think we have to reduce 2000 (7200-2000=5200).

Rajan Jaiswal said: (Jan 22, 2018)  
It should be option B (24000*.3 = 7200) only because 2000 is scrap value not salvage value.

Purchase value = D + Cs.

= 7200 + 2000 = 9200.

Working hour = 24000 * 0.3 = 7200,
Scrap value = 2000,
Purchase price = 7200 + 2000 = 9200.
