Let the additional invested amount for 8% interest be x;

Equation will be;
2400+0.05*2400+x+0.08x = 2400+x+0.06(2400+x)
0.05*2400+0.08x = 0.06x+0.06*2400
0.02x = 2400(0.06-0.05)
x = 2400*0.01/0.02 = 1200

Ans: "A"

120 + 8/100 * x = 6/100 * (x+2400)

=> (8-6)x/100 = 144 - 120

=> x = 2400/2 = 1200
