Let the radius of the inner circle be r.

Let the radius of the outer circle be R.

Given r = 1/5R. 5r = R

Circumference of smaller circle = 2πr.
Circumference of bigger circle = 2πR.

2πr:2πR.
2πr:2π(5r)
Ratio is 1:5

B is the answer

Given, \(r_{i}=\frac{r_{o}}{5}\)
Or, \(\frac{r_{i}}{r_{o}}=\frac{1}{5}\)
ratio of the circumference of the inner circle to that of the outer circle=\(\frac{2\pi*r_{i}}{2\pi*r_{o}}\)=\(\frac{r_{i}}{r_{o}}\)=\(\frac{1}{5}\)

Ans. (B)

Ratio of circumference of inner circle to the outer circle is equal to the ratio of radius of inner circle to the outer circle

r= \(\frac{1}{5}\)R= \(\frac{r}{R}\)= \(\frac{1}{5}\)

Answer: B.

given R = 5r

c1 = 2pir
c2 = 2piR
substituting the value
\(\frac{c1}{c2}\) =\(\frac{1}{5}\)

We can let the radius of the inner circle = 1, thus the radius of the outer circle = 5. Furthermore, the circumferences of the inner and outer circles are 2π and 10π, respectively; thus the ratio is

2π/10π = ⅕ , or 1 : 5.

Alternate Solution:

The ratio of the two radii is 1 : 5. Since the circumference of a circle is a linear function of the radius, then the ratio of the circumferences of the two circles remains unchanged from that of the radii, and it is still 1 : 5.

Answer: B
