• # question_answer When fractions represented by shaded parts in Figures (a), (b) and (c) are added, the resulting fraction is: A)  $2\frac{3}{4}$             B)         $1\frac{3}{4}$ C)  $1\frac{1}{4}$             D)        $2\frac{1}{4}$ E) None of these

Explanation: Option (b) is correct. Sum of fractions represented by all shaded parts: =$1+\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{4}$ =$\frac{1}{1}+\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{4}$ =$\frac{1\times 4}{1\times 4}+\frac{1\times 2}{2\times 2}+\frac{1}{4}$ =$\frac{4}{4}+\frac{2}{4}+\frac{1}{4}$ =$\frac{4+2+1}{4}$ =$\frac{7}{4}=1\frac{3}{4}$ Rest of the options is incorrect because of the correctness of option (b).
