      1891.67

    Correct Answer
    C. 1791.67
    Explanation
    The net pay is £1791.67 because the individual's annual salary of £26,000 is subject to a tax rate of 25%. The tax allowance of £8,000 is subtracted from the annual salary, leaving £18,000 as the taxable income. 25% of £18,000 is £4,500, which is then subtracted from the annual salary to get the net pay of £21,500. Finally, the net pay is divided by 12 to get the monthly net pay of £1791.67.
