If those negative signs in front of all the answers are bullet points, then it is the second answer.

one fourth of a number is technically n/4. n/4 is dividing n by 4, which is equivalent to one fourth of n.

So it is n/4. The second answer

If the bullet points *are *negative signs, then I don't think there is an answer.
