There are no such fractions. No matter how close a fraction is to zero, there are still infinitely many that are closer.

What fraction is closest to zero?

Fractions are infinitely dense and this means that between any two fractions there an infinite number of fractions. If any fraction, f, laid claims to being the nearest, there would be infinitely many fractions between 0 and f and so infinitely many fractions which were closer to 0. This means that f could not be the closest. The argument can be used again and again and so there cannot be a fraction closest to 0.

Which fractions are close to zero?

The answer depends on "compared with what". The fraction 3/8 is close to zero compared to 7/8, but it is far from zero compared to 3/80.Fractions are infinitely dense and so, given anyfraction, there are infinitely many fractions between that fraction and zero. All of these will be closer to zero. And if you pick any one of these, there will be infinitely many between it and zero which will be closer still. And so it goes on.

When will the difference of two fractions be equal to zero?

When you subtract a fraction from itself. Two equivalent fractions also have a difference of zero.

How can you find the LCM of two fractions?

The concept of LCM is not applicable to fractions. This is because all numbers are evenly divisible by all non-zero numbers and all numbers are multiples of all non-zero numbers.
