**Given :**

Javed was given $\frac{5}{7}$ of a basket of oranges.

**To do :**

We have to find the fraction of oranges left in the basket.

**Solution :**

The fraction of oranges left in the basket $= 1 - \frac{5}{7}$

$= \frac{(7\times 1-5)}{7}$

$= \frac{(7-5)}{7}$

$= \frac{2}{7}$.

**Therefore, the fraction of oranges left in the basket is $\frac{2}{7}$.**
