Yes ! just plug in an easy number , say 1/2

first of you can always know that the number with the highest exponent is the smallest fraction:

1/2^5 =1/32

1/2^2= 1/4

so on the face of it I,II and III are correct !

I, II and III must be right because we have a number that is positive and less than 1. Therefore X^1 is the greatest number X^2<X^1 and so on.
