a) 2/6 = 1/3
= 2/6 = 1/3

therefore
1/3=1/3
================> true

b) 1/3 >2/4

1/3 = 0.33
2/4 =0.5
===============>false

c) 1/8 > 3/4

1/8=0.12
3/4=0.75
================>false

d) 2/5 < 1/2

2/5=0.4
1/2=0.5
=================>true

e) 4/12 < 1/6

4/12=0.66
1/6=0.16
==================>  false

f) 3/5 = 7/10

3/5=0.6
7/10=0.7
==================>false

therefore only [ a] and [d] are true
