    The correct option is D, credit to Preferred Stock for $1,600,000 and Paid-in Capital in Excess of Par-Preferred Stock for $320,000

    Explanation:

    The total par value of the preferred stock issue is $100 multiplied by 16,000 which gives $1,600,000 while the remaining $20 per share multiplied by 16,000 that gave rise $320,000 goes to the credit of paid-in capital in excess of par-preferred stock account.

    Option A is wrong because the preferred has a par value of $100 hence the total cash proceeds cannot be posted to preferred stock account alone.

    Option B is wrong because the excess of $20 per share cannot be posted to retained earnings since it is net income
