Rajendra, a farmer, had two sons and two daughters. He decided to divide his property among his sons and daughters. So he wrote a "WILL" about the distribution of his property. According to his "WILL," he desired to give 3/5 of the property to his sons in equal proportion, 1/3 rd to his daughters in equal proportion, and the rest to a charitable trust. After his death, his "WILL" was opened and read out by the Advocate in the presence of all villagers.  Now answer the following questions.

The choices seem fine but I think the correct answer for 3 is 1/15 and 4 would be 14/15. The explanation is not very thorough and uses decimals instead of fractions so I am struggling to follow i
