A rational no. is of form a/b where a and b are coprime. Now, understand these steps:

1. Select 2 no. from 10 prime no. to represent in form a/b in 10C2 ways.

2.  Permute the two selected no. in 2! ways.

3.  So, total ways of permuting these two numbers is 10C2* 2!  = 10P2 ways.

3. now we have not included the cases when the two numbers selected would be same. They all will give one result i.e. 1. So adding 1 to the got result we get our answer as 91
