Hi All,

This question can be solved by TESTing VALUES.

From the answer choices, we can see that 4 of the 5 answers have a common denominator of 12, so let's TEST that...

Total Savings = $12

Carol spends 1/4 of her savings on a stereo...

Stereo = (1/4)($12) = $3

...and 1/3 less than she spent on the stereo for a television.

Television = $3 - (1/3)($3) = $2

We're asked what fraction of her savings she spent on the stereo and television?

3/12 + 2/12 = 5/12

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
