- always less than the original fraction
- always greater than the original fraction
- always equal to the original fraction
- such that nothing can .be claimed definitely

### Answer

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.**
