Options:

Solution:

HCF of any fraction is given as

HCF of two or more numbers is the greatest number which divides each of them exactly.

Thus, numbers which can exactly divide all the numbers 2, 6 and 8 will be either 1 or 2

Greatest number which divides each of them exactly will be 2

Thus, HCF of (2, 6 and 8) will be 2

LCM is the smallest number which is the multiple of all the numbers.

Thus, LCM of the numbers 25, 5, and 15 will be

Therefore,

Hence, (D) is the correct answer.
