Solution

## The correct option is B 510To determine the given fractions are in its simplest form or not, we have to find the common factors in the numerator and the denominator. Let's look at each options: 1) 32=1×31×2 =32 The common factor in both the numerator and the denominator is 1, hence 32 is in its simplest form. 2) 78=1×71×8 =78 The common factor in both the numerator and the denominator is 1, hence 78 is in its simplest form. 3) 510=1×52×5 =12 The common factor in both the numerator and the denominator is other than 1, hence 510 is NOT in the simplest form. ∴ 510 is not in the simplest form.
