1. Which of the following fraction is the smallest ?
1. 11/13
2. 9/11
3. 3/4
4. 5/7

1. 11/3 = 0.846,
9/11 = 0.818,
3/4 = 0.75 and
5/7 = 0.714

##### Correct Option: D

11/3 = 0.846,
9/11 = 0.818,
3/4 = 0.75 and
5/7 = 0.714
Clearly, 0.714 is the smallest and hence 5/7 is smallest fraction .

1. (.24 x .35 ) / (.14 x .15 x .02) is equal to ?
1. 2
2. 20
3. 200
4. 2000

1. (.24 x .35) / (.14 x .15 x .02)
= (24 x 35 x 100 ) / (14 x 15 x 2)

##### Correct Option: C

(.24 x .35) / (.14 x .15 x .02)
= (24 x 35 x 100 ) / (14 x 15 x 2)
=200

1. If 2805 / 2.55 = 1100, then 280.5 / 25.5 is equal to ?
1. 1.01
2. 1.1
3. 0.11
4. 11

1. Given expression 280.5 / 25.5 = 2805 / 255
= 2805 / (2.55 x 100)

##### Correct Option: D

Given expression 280.5 / 25.5 = 2805 / 255
= 2805 / (2.55 x 100)
= 1100 / 100
=11

1. If 1 / 3.718 = .2689, then the value of 1 / .0003718 is ?
1. 2689
2. 2.689
3. 26890
4. .2689

1. 1 / .003718 = 10000 / 3.718
= 10000 x ( 1/3.718)

##### Correct Option: A

1 / .003718 = 10000 / 3.718
= 10000 x ( 1/3.718)
= 10000 x .2689
= 2689.

1. ( 20 + 8 x 0.5 ) / ( 20 - ? ) = 12
1. 8
2. 18
3. 2
4. None these

1. Let (20 + 8 x 0.5) / ( 20 - y) =12
Then, 24 =12 x (20 - y)

##### Correct Option: B

Let (20 + 8 x 0.5) / ( 20 - y) =12
Then, 24 =12 x (20 - y)
∴ 12y = 216
⇒ y = 18
