    A

    Step-by-step explanation:

    A. Yes.

    B. No. This does not determine which fraction is greater.

    C. No. The "greater than" symbol is not used to describe the larger denominator.

    D. No. Multiply 2/9 * 2/2 = 4/28. 5/6 * 3/3 = 15/18

    28 and 18 are not common denominators and cannot be used to compare the fraction.
