Solution

The correct option is A

15


To find out whether the given fractions are terminating decimals or not, we need to do division and check.
On dividing, we get

16 = 0.1¯¯¯6, which is a recurring decimal.

13 = 0.¯¯¯3, which is a recurring decimal.

15 = 0.2, which is a terminating decimal, and hence it is the answer.

17 =0.¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯142857, which is also a recurring decimal.
