I will go with C.

The market value of a certain machine decreased by 30 percent of its purchase price each year.

So in 1992, purchase price = market value = 8000$
30 % * P.P = 2400

decersed amount = 80000 - ( 2400 *2 ) = 3200$

The question is not clear.

?????

1) 8000-30%=5600 First year.
2) 5600-30%=3920 Second year. No such answer!

or

1)8000*30%=2400
2)8000-(2400*2)=3200 Then answer is C.
