At a first glance ...the answer is none of them

Because to have a common deniminator for all of these fractions (it would result in a very big in value deniminator ).

I think answer is III only.

Each of terms 1/91, 1/92........1/100 is less than 1/90 sum will be less than 10* 1/90 = 1/9.
Each of terms 1/91, 1/92........1/100 is greater than 1/100 sum will be greater than 10 * 1/100 = 1/10

Sum 1/10 < SUM < 1/9
Hence 1/10 is less than the sum.
