Please see the solution and explanations below and as an attachment
Under this method we first calculate the total depreciation amount in useful life.
Total depreciable value of asset = Purchase amount - residual value (salvage value) at the end of useful life
Solution contains computation of depreciation for first and second year of use by using different methods.
