Solution Verified by Toppr
Correct option is D)

In the given set of marbles, there are a total of marbles and marbles are shaded amongst them. Therefore, the ratio of shaded marbles to the total number of marbles is:(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: Hence, the fraction is same as the given fraction . 0 0
