**Answer:**

According to Theorem, any given rational number of the form where and are co-prime, has a terminating decimal expansion if q is of the form , where and are non-negative integers.

(i)

Here, denominator is of the form , where and .

It means rational number has a terminating decimal expansion.

(ii)

Here, denominator is of the form , where and .

It means rational number has a terminating decimal expansion.

(iii)

Here, denominator is not of the form , where and are non-negative integers.

It means rational number has a terminating decimal expansion.

(v)

Here, denominator is not of the form , where m and n are non-negative integers.
