Which figures have one-quarter shaded?

We’re shown four different figures: figure a, b, c, and d. And we have to pick the ones which have one-quarter shaded.

This line divides shape a into two equal halves and the second line divides each half into quarters. And we can see that one of the quarters has been shaded orange. Figure a has one quarter shaded. This line divides figure b into two equal halves. The second line divides one of the halves into a half again. One of these quarters is shaded yellow. Figure b also has one-quarter shaded.

This line divides figure c into two equal halves. And the next two lines do divide the shape into four parts. But the parts are not equal. Figure c has four parts, but not four quarters. Figure d has been divided into quarters. And one of them is shaded blue.

The figures which show one-quarter shaded are figures a, b, and d.
