1. c lies exactly between a and b.

2. d lies exactly between a and c.

there are FOUR variables and NO numeric value. There is no relation between all four so that the variables get cancelled out from the fraction
Don't get overwhelmed with variables. press E immediately if something of this sort comes in actuals

E
