I didn't understand what was wanted here

I believe they are asking what is the correct way to say 100,000

i think the contributor is thinking about one of the Indonesian bank notes' denomination (rupiah)

I think the question is meant to teach us that "satu ratus" is not one hundred although "dua ratus" is two hundred, and that "sepuluh puluh" is also wrong even though ninety is "sembilan puluh". So the only choice that makes any sense at all is "seratus ribu"... ?

The question is very poorly constructed.

Satu ratus! (And a rabbit jumps out of hat)

I didn't quite understand the intention of this either, so by elimination "Satu ratus - RIBU" would have been wrong because 100 should have been seratus; and "sepuluh puluh - RIBU" would have been "10 tens THOUSAND", leaving "Seratus RIBU" the only available choice here.
