To know which is greater, first make their denominators equal.
1. 1/2 or 3/5
LCM of 2 and 5 = 2X5 = 10
= (1×5)/(2×5) =
= (3×2)/(5×2) =
Now as the denominator are equal, the fraction whose numerator is greater is   the greater number. So 3/5>1/2

2.Similarly LCM of 7 and 2 =14
5/7 = 10/14 and 1/2 = 7/14, So 5/7 is greater as 10>7.
3.LCM of 9 and 10 = 90
8/10 = 72/90 and 7/9 = 70/90, so 8/10 > 7/9
4.LCM of 6 and 7 = 42
5/6 = 35/42, 6/7 = 36/42. So 6/7 > 5/6

1/2=5/10 and 3/5=6/10.,so 3/5>1/2.
5/7 = 10/14 and 1/2 = 7/14, So 5/7 > 1/2.
8/10 = 72/90 and 7/9 = 70/90, so 8/10 > 7/9.
5/6 = 35/42 and 6/7 = 36/42. So 6/7 > 5/6.
