See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

To determine which fraction is larger than $\frac{5}{6}$ we can put each fraction over a common denominator and see which is larger.

7/8:

$\frac{5}{6} \times \frac{8}{8} \implies \frac{40}{48}$

$\frac{7}{8} \times \frac{6}{6} \implies \frac{42}{48}$

$\frac{7}{8}$ is larger than $\frac{5}{6}$

4/5

$\frac{5}{6} \times \frac{5}{5} \implies \frac{25}{30}$

$\frac{4}{5} \times \frac{6}{6} \implies \frac{24}{30}$

$\frac{5}{6}$ is larger than $\frac{4}{5}$

3/4

$\frac{5}{6} \times \frac{4}{4} \implies \frac{20}{24}$

$\frac{3}{4} \times \frac{6}{6} \implies \frac{18}{24}$

$\frac{5}{6}$ is larger than $\frac{3}{4}$

2/3

$\frac{5}{6}$

$\frac{2}{3} \times \frac{2}{2} \implies \frac{4}{6}$

$\frac{5}{6}$ is larger than $\frac{2}{3}$
