Which of the following is the smallest fraction?
$\frac{8}{25}, \frac{7}{23}, \frac{11}{23}, \frac{14}{53}$
[A]$\frac{11}{23}$
[B]$\frac{14}{53}$
[C]$\frac{8}{25}$
[D]$\frac{7}{23}$

$\mathbf{\frac{14}{53}}$
$\frac{8}{25} = 0.32, \frac{7}{23} = 0.30$
$\frac{11}{23} = 0.47, \frac{14}{53} = 0.26$
$\therefore \frac{14}{53}$ is the smallest fraction.
Hence option [B] is the correct answer.
