I. 2/3, 3/4, 4/5, 5/6, 6/7 FALSE

$$\frac{0.75 + 0.83}{2} < 0.8$$

II. 8/7, 7/6, 6/5, 5/4, 4/3 TRUE

$$\frac{1.16 + 1.25}{2} > 1.20$$

III. 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6 TRUE

$$\frac{0.33 + 0.2}{2} > 0.25$$

Since II and III are true, therefore the answer is (E)

Why u didnt take mean of all 05 numbers ? Like for all 05 fractions - 2/3, 3/4, 4/5, 5/6, 6/7
You took mean of only two numbers (one before and one after the median) $$\frac{0.75 + 0.83}{2}$$
Is thr some trick or concept ?
