Put them in the freezer and wait until frost forms on one of them. That will be the one closest to 0º C.

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.

By which fraction is closest to "60," I assume you mean which fraction is closest to 60 %. The answer would be 3/5ths.

-- Before I can name one that's closer, you have to give me a fraction, so I know what fraction mine has to be closer than. -- There's no such thing as "closest", unless you're looking at a list of permitted choices that you're not sharing.

Rational numbers are infinitely dense and so there is no such number. If for example, you considered F1 to be the fraction that was closet to 0 then what about half that number? F2 = (F1)/2 is closer to 0. And then what about F3 = (F2)/2? This could go on for ever.
