The fraction of pencils used by Ramesh is:-

$=\ \frac{10}{20}\ =\ \frac{1}{2}$

The fraction of pencils used by Sheelu is:-

$=\ \frac{25}{50}\ =\ \frac{1}{2}$

The fraction of pencils used by Jamaal is:-

$=\ \frac{40}{80}\ =\ \frac{1}{2}$

Thus, the fractions of pencils used by each are the same.
