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)

chetan2u, VeritasKarishma, Gladiator59 : is there a shortcut for these questions, without actually calculating?

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 ?
