The length of the rose that can be inside the vase is 10. The stem is not in the water but inside the vase is 2. The fraction is \(\frac{2}{12} = \frac{1}{6}\)

A

B



I think answer should be A not be -we need fraction of the rose's stem i.e out of 12 inches, 10 is inside>2 out of this 10 is not in water and therefore 2/12=1/6

What fraction of the rose's stem (stem = 12") is inside the vase (vase = 10") but not in the water (water = 8").
So the fraction is: \(\frac{(10-8)}{12}=\frac{1}{6}\)
(A) is the answer.

Fraction of the rose's stem inside the vase, but not in the water=
(Length of stem inside vase but outside water) / (Total Length of the stem)

= (10-2)/12 = 2/12= 1/6

Ans A
