You're on the right track, but 5 is not a fraction.

Right. :-)

Now for question 3.

If you use all capital letters you have FRANCES. Four letters are made of only straight line segments: F and A.

What are the other two letters with only straight lines?

When letters are written in lower case letters, these letters extend below the line:

g, j, p, q, y

Are any of those letters in your name?

The fraction of letters that extend below the line in your name is 0/7.
