    B. $300,000

    Explanation:

    The computation of the reduction of retained earning amount is shown below:

    = Number of shares of common stock * stock dividend percentage * market value

    = 1,000,000 shares * 6% * $5

    = $300,000

    Since the dividend amount is adjusted while computing the ending balance of retained earning balance and the same is to be considered in the computation part.

    All other information which is given is not relevant. Hence, ignored it
