 Which of the following fractions is greater than 3 and less than 5 ? 4 6

[A].
 1 2
[B].
 2 3
[C].
 4 5
[D].
 9 10

Explanation:

 3 = 0.75, 5 = 0.833, 1 = 0.5, 2 = 0.66, 4 = 0.8, 9 = 0.9. 4 6 2 3 5 10

Clearly, 0.8 lies between 0.75 and 0.833. 4 lies between 3 and 5 . 5 4 6

 Ketki said: (Jan 10, 2012) 2/3 i.e. 0.66 also lies between 0.75 and 0.833

 Gurpreet Singh said: (Jul 22, 2012) 0.66 is not lie between 0.75 and 0.833, because 0.66 is less than 0.75.

 Tamilselvi said: (Jun 18, 2013) Simple way. For this this problem alone. Greater than 3/4 and less than 5/6. Numerator is 3 and 5 = 4 (in between). Denominator is 4 and 6 = 5 (in between). So the is 4/5. For time constraint so simple na.

 Anupama Holla said: (Mar 27, 2014) Numerator being in between 3 & 5 and denominator being in between 4 & 6 may help everywhere, say if there was an option 9/11 instead of 4/5 then we had to opt for that coz 9/11 is .818181... which lies in between .75 & .833. We also can go for this approach, by cross multiplying we can find which is greater, eg: 3/4 = 1/2 3*2 = 1*4 6 = 4. So 6 > 4 => 3/4 > 1/2 So 1/2 is not an option. So we can continue...

 Nabanita Sarkar said: (Jul 4, 2014) We have to find the fraction which is greater than 3/4 and less then 5/6. In case of numerators 4 is greater than 3 and less than 5 and in case of denominators 5 is greater than 4 and smaller than 6, So, the answers is C) 4/5.

 Mohankumar said: (Aug 20, 2014) We can take lcm of all then multiply a, b, c, d, question part with lcm you 'll get the answer. Anybody have doubt?

 Surya said: (Sep 20, 2014) We can find the inverse of the numbers which is easy to find. For Ex here inverse of 3/4 is 4/3 = 1.33 and 6/5 is 1.2. The question is greater than 3/4 and less than 5/6. As we have inverse the numbers inverse the question also implies greater than 3/4 is less than 4/3 and less than 5/6 implies more than 6/5. Only 5/4 inverse of 4/5 fits here.

 Satya said: (Jun 21, 2015) Simply by adding numerators and denominators we get middle fraction. 3/4+5/6 = 3+5/4+6 = 8/10 = 4/5.
