Please note that OA and options are NOT available in the source. Please suggest the best approach to solve this in the least possible time.

5/6 and 0.8333 respectively..

The best approach is to know the pattern of fractions... For example, any fraction, N/3 would be of form X.3333333 or a multiple of it (Y.6666666) or integer

Or, any factor, N/4 would be of form X.25 or a multiple (Y.50, Z.75) or integer

And so on...

For the given question

It comes down to:

5/6 * 1/7 * 7/8 * 8/9 * 9= 5/6 or 0.83333
