# Moderate Number System Solved QuestionAptitude Discussion

 Q. What is the correct arrangement of the fractions $\dfrac{5}{8}, \dfrac{7}{12}, \dfrac{13}{16}, \dfrac{16}{29}$ and $\dfrac{3}{4}$ in ascending order of magnitude.
 ✔ A. $\dfrac{16}{29} < \dfrac{7}{12} < \dfrac{5}{8} < \dfrac{3}{4} < \dfrac{13}{16}$ ✖ B. $\dfrac{16}{29} < \dfrac{7}{12} < \dfrac{5}{8} < \dfrac{13}{16} < \dfrac{3}{4}$ ✖ C. $\dfrac{7}{12} < \dfrac{16}{29} < \dfrac{5}{8} < \dfrac{13}{16}< \dfrac{3}{4}$ ✖ D. $\dfrac{16}{29} < \dfrac{5}{8} < \dfrac{7}{12} < \dfrac{3}{4} < \dfrac{13}{16}$

Solution:
Option(A) is correct

Converting each of the given fractions into decimal form, we get :

$\dfrac{5}{8} = 0.624$

$\dfrac{7}{12} = 0.8125$

$\dfrac{16}{29} = 0.5517$,and

$\dfrac{3}{4} = 0.75$

Now, $0.5517 < 0.5833 < 0.625 < 0.75 < 0.8125$
⇒ $\dfrac{16}{29} < \dfrac{7}{12} < \dfrac{5}{8} < \dfrac{3}{4} < \dfrac{13}{16}$
