Rent income if arises on account of residential income its exempt from GST.
In the rent income is from other than residential property then same is liable to GST,
Composition scheme mentions than only those person whose aggregate turnover is below Rs 1.5crs can opt for Composition scheme.
In current case it is well below Rs 1.5 Cr.
Now the question comes about the rate of tax.
Aggregate turnover includes all taxable supplies.
Since rental income is a taxable supply and registered person is under composition scheme, tax will be charged at 1% only. 18 % rate is for the registered person other than composition scheme
