(i) \frac{-2}{3} here, the numerator is -2 which is negative and the denominator is 3 which is positive.

Hence, the fraction is negative.

(ii) \frac{5}{7} here, the numerator is 5 which is positive and the denominator is 7 which is also positive.

Hence, the fraction is positive.

(iii) \frac{3}{-5} here, the numerator is 3 which is positive and the denominator is -5 which is negative.

Hence, the fraction is negative.

(iv) 0 zero is neither positive nor a negative number. 

(v) \frac{6}{11} here, the numerator is 6 which is positive and the denominator is 11 which is also positive.

Hence, the fraction is positive.

(vi) \frac{-2}{-9} here, the numerator is -2 which is negative and the denominator is -9 which is also a negative integer.

Hence, the fraction is overall a positive fraction.
