If 1/4 of the juniors is equal to 3/5 of the seniors, what fraction of the students in the room are juniors?/
\(\frac{1}{4}J\) = \(\frac{3}{5}S\)
So, J = \(\frac{12}{5}s\)

Every student in a room is either a junior or a senior. There is at least one junior and at least one senior in the room.
So, Total no of Students in the room is = junior + senior
Or, Total no of Students in the room is = \(\frac{12}{5}s\)+ \(s\)
Or, Total no of Students in the room is = \(\frac{17}{5}s\)

Required Fraction is = Juniors/Total Number of Students
Or, Required Fraction is =12s/5/17s/5
Or, The Required Fraction is = 12/17
Hence answer is (D) 12/17
