1. Q. A earns £250 a week. how much does he earn a year.

1. 12,000. Because 1000 a month so 12,000 a year.

2. £13,000. £250 x 52 = 13,000.

which is right?
2. Why would 1 be right? There are more than 4 weeks in a month

This. I really don't understand why you'd assume £1000 a month for 12 months when the question clearly states per week. Use the information you have, don't try to invent new information.
4. In a non leap year there are just over 52 weeks in a year though. So depends what they're looking for really doesn't it.

Look at a calendar and you will see that all months except Ferbuary* consist of more than 4 weeks or 28 days.
