To determine the correct answer, we need to calculate the difference between $$\frac{2}{3}$$ and each answer choice...

A. $$\frac{3}{4}-\frac{2}{3}=\frac{9}{12}-\frac{8}{12}=\frac{1}{12}$$

B. $$\frac{5}{6}-\frac{2}{3}=\frac{5}{6}-\frac{4}{6}=\frac{1}{6}$$

C. $$\frac{7}{9}-\frac{2}{3}=\frac{7}{9}-\frac{6}{9}=\frac{1}{9}$$

D. $$\frac{11}{15}-\frac{2}{3}=\frac{11}{15}-\frac{10}{15}=\frac{1}{15}$$

E. $$\frac{15}{21}-\frac{2}{3}=\frac{15}{21}-\frac{14}{21}=\frac{1}{21}$$

The smallest difference is $$\frac{1}{21}$$

Cheers,
Brent
