Answer: (D) Rs. 28000

Solution:-
Salim borrowed Rs. 50000 at 12% p.a. interest for 3 years, 
Then, Principal = 50, 000 , rate = 12% & Time = 3 years

Simple Interest = 50000 x 12 x 3/100
 = 500 x 36
 = 18000

Amount = 50000 + 18000
 = 68000

He paying Rs. 40000 and motorcycle 
Cost of Motorcycle + 40000 = 68000
 Cost of motorcycle = 68000 – 40000
 = Rs. 28, 000

Then, the cost of motorcycle is Rs. 28000.

Hence, the correct answer is option (D) Rs. 28000.
