We have studied the energy states and the optical-absorption spectra for interacting electrons in a quantum ring with the spin degrees of freedom included. We observe features unique to the spin and interactions viz decrease of the period and amplitude of oscillations of the ground-state energy (fractional Aharonov-Bohm effect). This period decrease is explained in terms of the lifting of spin singlet-triplet degeneracy due to the interactions and Hund's rule. The optical-absorption spectra also show several unique features which are a combined effect of spin, impurity and interactions.
