Explanation The given image shows a fraction line with three fractions written below it. The first fraction is 1/4, the second fraction is 2/8, and the third fraction is 1/8. The correct answer is 1/4 because it is the only fraction that is equivalent to 1/4. The second fraction, 2/8, can be simplified to 1/4 by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 2. The third fraction, 1/8, is not equivalent to 1/4 as it has a smaller denominator. Therefore, the correct answer is 1/4.
