46/150 = 23/75.

Now, all options have the same numerator 23. If numerator is same, the fraction with the highest value will be the one with the lowest denominator.

Answer (E).

A)23/77
B)23/78
C)23/84
D)23/87
E)46/150


Among options (A) , (B) ,(C) & (D)

23/77 > 23/78 > 23/84 > 23/87

SO, (A) is highest..

Now compare (A) with (E)

(A) 23/77 ~ 29.xx%

(E) 46/150 ~ 31%

So, (E) > (A)

Hence correct answer will be (E)
