# If the numerator and denominator of a proper fraction are increased

If the numerator and denominator of a proper fraction are increased by the same positive quantity which is greater than zero, the resulting fraction is

1. always less than the original fraction
2. always greater than the original fraction
3. always equal to the original fraction
4. such that nothing can .be claimed definitely

Let the fraction be 1/2.

Suppose, we add 2 to both the numerator and denominator, the new fraction becomes

(1+2)/(2+2) = 3/4.

1/2 = 0.5 and 3/4 = 0.75

So, 3/4 > 1/2

The correct option is B.
