c. $120,000 in cehckable-deposit liabilities and $32,000 in reserves
d. $100,000 in checkable-deposit liabilites and $30,000 in reserves

Use algebra. Total reserves are required reserves plus excess reserves.
Required reserves are .2*liabilities, and your are given excess reserves. So, simply multiply the reserve requirement ratio to each of the liability amounts to find the correct answer.
