is it (e) 8d/3 ?

SI formula is PRT/100 where
P - principal
R - annual rate (%age)
T - time in years

From given, 600 = d*k*2/100 => k = 600*100/(2*d)

New interest is 2400 and new time is 3 yrs. Rate remains same (k)

Let new principle be x
2400 = x*k*3/100
Substituting k in terms of d, we get
x=8d/3.

It is E 8d/3

since it is $600 for 2 years at simple interest, per year you get$300
and for $2400 for 3 years you need$800 per year

Hence
k/100 * d gives you $300 x gives you$800

cross-multiplying

x = 800/300 * kd/100
x = 8d/3 *(k/100)

Hence the new dollar amount must be 8d/3 (since k is the same)
