One sixth is one piece of something that has been split into 6 pieces. One third is one piece of something that has been split into only 3 pieces. So each of the six pieces would be smaller than 1/3 of the original something. So one sixth (or 1/6 as a fraction) is LESS than one third and so is also less that two thirds (2/3).

And that is more than .17 so two thirds is closer to a half than it is to one.
