(a) In the given set of squares, there are a total of  squares and  squares are shaded amongst them. Therefore, the ratio of shaded squares to the total number of squares is:


Hence, the fraction is not same as the given fraction 

(b) In the given set of squares, there are a total of  squares and  squares are shaded amongst them. Therefore, the ratio of shaded squares to the total number of squares is:


Hence, the fraction is not same as the given fraction 

(c) In the given set of rectangles, there are a total of  rectangles and  rectangles are shaded amongst them. Therefore, the ratio of shaded rectangles to the total number of rectangles is:


Hence, the fraction is not same as the given fraction 

(d) In the given set of rectangles, there are a total of  rectangles and  rectangles are shaded amongst them. Therefore, the ratio of shaded rectangles to the total number of rectangles is:
