I had to look up what a benchmark fraction is. It looks like the benchmark fractions are 1/10, 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4.Of these, 1/2 is the closest to 94/156. It is actually very close to 6/10, but I guess that's not one of them.

A benchmark fraction is one that you can remember easily. In the context of time (hours in a day, months in a year, inches in a foot) 5/12 is a convenient fraction.

fraction for one and one half = 1 1/2

1/2 = Half in fraction terms. -Liam

half of one half is one fourth or 1/4.

Presumably you're looking at a list to choose from. Choose the one where the numerator is closest to half of the denominator, like 4/9, or 5/11.
