manhattan187 really explained it technically. Thanks a lot cos I got an idea from that. GMAT's unusual way of testing the too fundamental!
Now lemme humbly share to all how I just nailed that elementary arithmetic with a market place knowledge.
,100 cents make one dollar. 10 cents make a dime.
how many dimes are in a dollar?

you nailed it! 10! ten dimes are in one dollar.
now what is the ratio of dime to dollar?
is it 10?

1/10! you nailed it!
You know that 10dimes make a dollar. right? what does it mean to say ratio of one dime to one dollar? I mean in literal economic sense. (tip: 10/2 means 10 things is being shared equally by two persons. so it means how many 2s do u get in a 10?. answer is 5two.)

So the ratio of one dime to one dollar is dime/dollar. i.e. how many dollars do you get in a dime?
... of course you don't get up to a dollar in a dime.
you just get (1/10) dollars.
PS: still kudos to us in the annoying tic question for wrongly solving to get 2/15 and rightly use our commonsense to know that since you should get too many tocs in a freaking tic, therefore the answer must be more than one. So u quickly guessed by choosing the option that inverts what you've got from a good albeit imperfect thought process knowing that time is running out.
