Q)

# Ashwin has a nice garden, three-fifths of which is vegetables and one-tenth is fruits. If he wants to plant herbs, what fraction of the garden is available to him for cultivation?

(A) $\large\frac{1}{10}$
(B) $\large\frac{1}{5}$
(C) $\large\frac{3}{10}$
(D) $\large\frac{2}{5}$

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}$
