D.none of these

ANSWER Verified Verified
Hint- For this type of question we should be knowing about the basic definitions of the fractions and also should be knowing which sub category of fractions falls under the category where we have different denominators for fractions and what they are called according to the definition.

Complete step-by-step answer:
As, according to the definition fractions that have the different denominators are known as the unlike fractions. The word unlike simply means different that’s why different denominators.
For example: The first fraction below has a denominator of two and the second fraction below has a denominator of three. Since the denominators are different, they are unlike fractions.
$\dfrac{1}{2}$ and $\dfrac{2}{3}$
 Hence, unlike fractions are the fractions with the different denominators.
$\therefore $ Option B. unlike is the correct answer.

Note- For such types of questions, just keep in mind the basic definition of the fractions. Fractions represent equal parts of a whole or a collection. A fraction has two parts. The number on the top of the line is called the numerator. It tells how many equal parts of the whole or collection are taken. The number below the line is called the denominator. It shows the total divisible number of equal parts the whole into or the total number of equal parts which are there in a collection. Also, keep in mind that the unlike fractions are those which have the different denominators. It is a sub-category where we define the fractions by comparing and taking two fractions under consideration.
