Let x = smaller angle Since the two angles are in ratio of 1:5, this means that if one angle (the smaller angle) is x, then the other is 5 times bigger....so 5x The two angles are then x and 5x

the two angles are complementary, so angle 1 + angle 2 = 90 x + 5x = 90

also, complementary means they total to 90 degrees - so eliminate some of your choices

notice how 15+75 = 90 and that 75 is five times bigger than 15
