If your answer is yes, which ratio problem would you not use a proportion to solve?

Your question doesn't make any sense. If you can use a proportion to solve any ratio problem, then there can't be any ratio problems that can't be solved by a proportion.

I'd answer yes, that a proportion can be used to solve any ratio problem. There are no ratio problems that can't be solved by a proportion.
