(D) $21.60



Initial discount, = 0.9 (1-10/100*1)

after sale discount of, 60% 0.9 - 0.54 = 0.36

2 Cartons => 60 * 0.36

$21.60

1 peach--> 1$
1 peach in cartoon --> 0.9$
Extra discount--> 0.6*0.9=0.054 // 0.9-0.054=0.36$/peach in the cartoon
cartoon=30 peaches
result: 2*30=60 peaches bought @ 0.36$ --> 60*0.36=6*3.6=21.6 :)
