Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : Anil < Nitin < Ruchi

Given:

Nitin jumped = 16/3 feet

Anil jumped = 17/4 feet

Ruchi jumped = 15/2 feet

Calculation:

16/3, 17/4, 15/2 

LCM of 3, 4 and 2 is 12

16/3 × 4/4 = 64/12

17/4 × 3/3 = 51/12

15/2 × 6/6 = 90/12

⇒ 51/12 < 64/12 < 90/12

∴ Anil < Nitin < Ruchi

The correct option is 3 i.e. Anil < Nitin < Ruchi
