Working:

Premium on bonds payable on January 1= ($644,636-$600,000)= $44,636

Interest expenses on July 1 = (644,636 x 6% x 1/2)= $19,339.08

Premium on bond payable on July 1 ($21,000-19,339.08) = $1,660.92

Interest paid in cash paid on July 1= ($600,000 x 7% x 1/2) = $21,000.

Interest expenses on December 31 = {(644,636 -$1,660.92)x 6% x 1/2} =$19,289.25

Interest payable on December 31, 2017=($600,000 x 7% x 1/2) =$21,000

Premium on bond payable on December 31 ($21,000-19,289.25) = $1,710.75.
