Answer: (1) 2/3

Explanation:-
The value of fraction 1/2 = 0.50
The value of fraction 2/3 = 0.66
The value of fraction 5/9 = 0.55
The value of fraction 6/13 = 0.46
The value of fraction  7/9 = 0.77

Now, the fractions are arranged in ascending order –
6/13  < 1/2 < 6/9 < 2/3 < 7/9

Then, the fourth fraction will be 2/3.

Hence, the answer is (1) 2/3.
