A)
He has used up $\large\frac{3}{5}$ of his garden for vegetables and $\large\frac{1}{10}$ for fruits.
Amount of garden he has used up $ =\large\frac{3}{5}$$ +\large\frac{1}{10}$$=\large\frac{6+1}{10}$$ = \large\frac{7}{10}$
The amount of garden remaining that he can use for herbs $=1-\large\frac{7}{10}$$=\large\frac{10-7}{10}$$ = \large\frac{3}{10}$
