Answer a - c, m, w

m ~ 1/3
w ~ 1/2

and m+w+c = 1 hence c ~ 1/6

Hence increasing order would be c -> m -> w

a.c, m, w
b.c, w, m
c.m,w,c
d.w,c,m
e.w,m,c

w is approx = half

m is approx = 0.4
thus sure

a is the answer increasing order ( c<m<w)

Yes, decimals work faster than common denominators here. E would be correct if the question asked for DESCENDING order.
