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.
