# Three rational numbers lying between -3/4 and 1/2 are

(a) -1/2, 0, 3/4

(b) -1/4, 1/4, 3/4

(c) -1/4, 0, 1/4

(d) -5/4, 0, 1/4

**Solution:**

Given range is -3/4 and 1/2

Rational numbers are set of fractions, decimals and whole numbers

So, according to the range given, the maximum value should be 1/2 and minimum value should be -3/4

Now, we need to find numbers between them

(a) -1/2, 0, 3/4: In this set, 3/4 doesn’t lie in given range

(b) -1/4, 1/4, 3/4: In this set, 3/4 doesn’t lie in given range

(c) -1/4, 0, 1/4: In this set, all lie in given range

(d) -5/4, 0, 1/4: In this set, -5/4 doesn’t lie in given range

Therefore, the numbers lying between -3/4 and 1/2 are -1/4, 0, 1/4

**✦ Try This:** The number which lies between -4/3 and -1/3 is (a) 0, (b) -2/3, (c) 1/3, (d) 4/3

The number which lies between -4/3 and -1/3 can be either -2/3 or -3/3

As we have -2/3 in the given options

Therefore, -2/3 is the solution
