• # question_answer Directions From the four answers given, shade the appropriate answer in the space provided for it on the OW Answer Sheet. The smallest of the fractions given below A) $\frac{9}{10}$                                  B) $\frac{11}{12}$C) $\frac{23}{28}$                    D) $\frac{32}{33}$

Ans.     Ist method Converting all the fraction into decimals [i] $\frac{9}{10}=0.900$                  [ii] $\frac{11}{12}=0.916$ [iii] $\frac{23}{28}=0.821$              [iv] $\frac{32}{33}0.969$ $\therefore$    $\frac{23}{28}$ is smallest. IInd method Convert all the fractions with same denominator. So, taking the LCM OF 10, 12, 28, 33. [i] $\frac{9}{10}=\frac{4158}{4620}$                    [ii] $\frac{11}{12}=\frac{4235}{4620}$ [iii] $\frac{23}{28}=\frac{3795}{4620}$                [iv] $\frac{32}{33}=\frac{4480}{4620}$ $\therefore$    $\frac{23}{28}$ is smallest.
