Answer : (b) 1
Explanation : $\;Let \;S=\sum_{n=2}^{\infty}\;\large\frac{1}{f_{n+1}.f_{n-1}}$
$Let \;S=\sum_{n=2}^{\infty}\;\large\frac{f_{n}}{(f_{n+1}.f_{n-1})f_{n}}$
$f_{n+1}=f_{n}+f_{n-1}$
$f_{n}=f_{n+1}-f_{n-1}$
$S=\sum_{n=2}^{\infty}\;\large\frac{f_{n+1}-f_{n-1}}{(f_{n+1}.f_{n-1})f_{n}}$
$S=\sum_{n=2}^{\infty}\;\large\frac{1}{f_{n}f_{n-1}}-\large\frac{1}{f_{n}f_{n+1}}$
$S=\large\frac{1}{1.1}=1\;.$
