#### Solution

**₹24000**

**Explanation :**

∵ Suresh's annual salary = ₹ 1.08 lakh

∴ Suresh's monthly salary = `108000/12` = ₹ 9000

⇒ Nandini's monthly salary = 9000 x 2 = ₹ 8000

Now, 12% of Kaushal's monthly salary

= 16% of 18000 = `(16xx18000)/100`

⇒ Kaushal's monthly salary = `(16xx18000)/100xx100/2`

= ₹ 24000
