I think the right answer is 38.22cm. So, here nearly is 38 cm.

Ca/Xa = Ta/m/d-Xa,
80/Xa =1400/18/46 - Xa,
80/Xa = 77.7/46-Xa,
80(46-Xa) = 77.7Xa.
Xa= 23.33.
d-Xa/3.
46-23.33/3.
Lever arm = 38.23~40cm.

K = m.σ(cbc)/ m.σ(cbc) + σ(st) = 99.5.
J = 1-0.42k = 41.7 ~ 40.

n(actual neutral axis) =k(design constant) *d, =0.4*460=184mm = 18.4cm.
Permissible working stress=1400 kg/cm2(mild steel),
n/3 = 61.33.
Lever arm = 460 - 61.33(d-n/3),
= 398.67mm,
= 39.86cm
~40cm.

The answer is 40cm because here in question the value of C=8 is wrong. M=18 is for M15 concrete and for M15 C=5.
