Common denominator is 96
 
 
-1/4 = -24/96
-11/32 = -33/96
-3/8 = -36/96
-1/2 = -48/96
 
 
-5/6 = -80/96
 
 
 
Answer:   ALL of them.  -24/96 > -33/96 > -36/96 > -48/96 > -80/96

The higher (larger) number is the one that is the smallest, once you are on the negative side of 0 on the number line.

 
If you are talking the absolute value, then NONE of them.
 
Since |-5/6| > | any of the others |
