10:2 is not in lowest terms, both numbers divide by 2

10:2

= 5:1

2.

r/5= 9/21

r = 45/21 = 15/7 which is appr 2.143

They should have given 15/7 as the correct choice,

the rounded off number is not exact.

3. puzzled by your choice.

it takes 3 cups to make 9 dozen

so it takes 9 cups to make 9 dozen

4.

39/12 , this fraction does not reduce any more

5. 62.6 gallons/10 months = 6.26 gallons/month

(you had that one right, finally!)

6. If 3 cookies cost $2.97 then

1 cookie costs 2.97/3 or 99 cents per cookie

Wow, 1 out of 6!
