You say your answer is D, but don't show a "D"
If you did
Present Value = 4000(1  1.03^(10)/.03
= 34120.81
then you were correct.

Not knowing what D is, it is difficult to assess whether you are correct or not.
Since the payments are made at the "beginning" of each 6 month period, the formula must be adjusted to
P = R + R[1  (1+i)^n] where i = .o6/2 = .03 and n = 1 period less than 5(2) = 9.
Therefore, P = 4000 + 4000[1(1.03)^9]/i = $35,144.44 making B your correct choice.
