Thank you

But I understood how you got this values: 30000,1.10, 1.20 etc.

But I didn't understand how this equation obtained in my solution: 30000 [1+10/100]^2 x [1+20/100] - 30000 ?

I thought that I had explained that.

20% annually is 10% half yearly. 3000 compounded half yearly for one year (2 half years) is a total (both initial amount and interest) of $\displaystyle 3000[1+ 10/100]^2$.

For the second year, we multiply (1 + 20/100) by the amount at the beginning of the year. That amount is $\displaystyle 3000[1+ 10/100]^2$, so the total amount at the end of the second year is $\displaystyle 3000[1+ 10/100]^2(1+ 20/100)$.

But the question asked for "total interest earned" for those two year. That is the total amount at the end of the second year minus the original amount: $\displaystyle 3000[1+ 10/100]^2(1+ 20/100)- 3000$.
