    Sohan was putting covers on his note books. He put one fourth of the covers on Monday. He put another one fourth on              Tuesday and the remaining on Wednesday. What fraction of the covers did he put on Wednesday?

He put covers on Monday= He put the cover on Tuesday = and the remaining on Wednesday. Thus, the fraction of the covers he put on Wednesday =

9.  Jaidev takes 2\frac{1}{5}  minutes to walk across the school ground. Rahul takes \frac{7}{4} minutes to do the same. Who takes less time and by what fraction?

Firstly, let us convert the time taken by Jaidev in improper fraction from mixed fraction.                                        Now, comparing both, we have :                              Also,                Hence Rahul takes less time as compared to Jaidev by      fraction.

8. Asha and Samuel have bookshelves of the same size partly filled with books. Asha’s shelf is \frac{5}{6}th  full and Samuel’s shelf is  \frac{2}{5}th full. Whose bookshelf is more full? By what fraction?

If we compare the bookshelves of both, we obtain that :                          Also,                Hence the bookshelf of Asha is more full and by  fraction.  

7. Nandini’s house is \frac{9}{10}\; km from her school. She walked some distance and then took a bus for  \frac{1}{2}\; km  to reach the school. How far did she walk?

The distance Nandini walked is given by :-         Hence she walked .

6.  A piece of wire  \frac{7}{8}  metre long broke into two pieces. One piece was \frac{1}{4}  metre long. How long is the other piece?

Let the length of another piece of wire be x. Thus,                                       Hence the length of other part is   .
