    I'm assuming that 4/14 should be 3/14

    if so, then plug in n=1 into each answer choice and see which answer choice gives 1/2 as the result then plug in n = 2 into each answer choice and see which answer choice gives 3/7 as the result etc etc if there is an answer choice that gives you the sequence 1/2, 3/7, 1/3, 5/19, 3/14 when you plug in n = 1, n = 2, n = 3, n = 4, and n = 5, then that's the answer choice you want
