If you are on a SPR question, and you get 2/4 as the answer, do you have to reduce it to 1/2? Or for that matter, could you enter in 3/6?

You do NOT have to reduce the fractions.
2/4 is the same as 1/2.
For the grid-ins, fractions are actually better. I read somewheere that you could make an error by solving the fraction.
As an example, assuming the answer is 2/3. You could write .66 for .667, and that could be construed as incorrect.
I am not 100% sure for the second part but I know that you can leave the fraction as is.

for 2/3 you would have to put .666 or .667, .66 is not correct, neither is .67

That is why you do not reduce fractions:

Oh my god! I got 10/7 but in decimal form and I bubbled in 1.24 instead of 1.42. Someone shoot me now!!
Anyhow, why bother, you do not get extra credit for the extra effort and you could lose one point.
