 each part of a shape, when divided into four equal parts, is called a fourth.
 each part of a shape, when divided into five equal parts, is called a fifth.
Solution:
We consider all the fraction models one by one in order to identify the fraction showing a onethird.
 We consider the first fraction model.
The given fraction model shows three equal parts.
The shaded part of the fraction model shows twothirds.
Twothirds means two of three equal parts.

 Looking at the second fraction model.
The given fraction model shows three equal parts.
The shaded part of the fraction model shows a onethird.
Onethird means one of three equal parts.
 Looking at the second fraction model.
Therefore, the fraction model, shows a onethird.
