**Given: **

Aradhana grows potatoes in $ \frac{2}{5}$ part of her garden

Greens in $\frac{1}{3}$ part and brinjals in the remaining part.

**To do: ** To find on how much of her plot did she plant brinjal.

**Solution:**

In total, she has grown potatoes and greens in

$\frac{2}{5} + \frac{1}{3}$

=$\frac{6 + 5}{15}$

= $\frac{11}{15}$ part

She has grown brinjals in the remaining part

Remaining part of plot

$1 - \frac{11}{15}$

= $\frac{15 - 11}{15}$

=$\frac{ 4}{15}$

**Thus she has grown brinjals in $\frac{4}{15}$ part of her plot.**
