Correct option is (b) ωe / ωw

Easy explanation: Gear ratio is defined as the ratio of the angular speed of the initial or driving member of a gear train or equivalent mechanism to that of the final or driven member specifically: the number of engine revolutions per revolution of the rear wheels of an automobile.
