  Question

There are four cakes of each 5 slices. Aman takes 2 slices from first cake, Bhargav takes 3 slices from the second cake, Charan takes 4 slices from the third cake and Daman takes only 1 slice from the fourth cake. Who has taken the largest fraction of cake among the four?

A
Aman  B
Bhargav  C
Charan  D
Daman  Solution

The correct option is C CharanThe fraction taken by Aman is 2 slices out of 5 slices. Hence, Aman's fraction = 25 The fraction taken by Bhargav is 3 slices out of 5 slices. Hence, Bhargav's fraction = 35 The fraction taken by Charan is 4 slices out of 5 slices. Hence, Charan's fraction = 45 The fraction taken by Daman is 1 slices out of 5 slices. Hence, Daman's fraction = 15 Thus, the fractions are 25, 35, 45 and 15. Since, all the denominators are same, we should compare the numerator. The larger the numerator, the larger the fraction. Here, the largest numerator is 4. So, the largest fraction is 45. Hence, Charan took the largest fraction of cake.Mathematics
