At a certain high school, the junior class is twice the size of the senior class. If 1/3 of the seniors & 1/4 of the juniors study Japanese, what fraction of the students in both classes do not study Japanese?
A. 1/6
B. 5/18
C. 5/12
D. 7/12
E. 13/18
Let the no of students in Senior Class be 6
So, the no of students in Junior Class be 12
Total No of Students is 18
So, 2 students of Senior Class study Japanese
And, 3 students of Junior Class study Japanese
Students who study Japanese is 5
Hence, 13 students do not study Japanese.
Thus, fraction of the students in both classes do not study Japanese is 13/18
Hence, answer will be (E) 13/18
