**Hint:**Surface charge density is the measure of charge per unit area. Volume charge density is the measure of charge distributed over a volume. Keep in mind the difference between sphere and a hollow sphere.

**Complete step by step answer:**

The charge density is a measure of charge per unit area or volume over which it is distributed. It can be either positive or negative.

**Linear charge density:**Linear charge density is represented by ratio of charge and length over which it is distributed. It is represented by $\lambda =\dfrac{q}{l}$

**Surface charge density:**Surface charge density is represented by the ratio of charge and the area over which it is distributed. It is represented by $\sigma =\dfrac{q}{A}$

**Volume charge density:**Volume charge density is the ratio of charge and the volume over which it is distributed. It is represented by

$\rho =\dfrac{q}{v}$

Where $q$ is the charge, $l$ is the length, $A$ is the area of the surface and $v$ is the volume of the body.

Charge on the outer sphere: $-4\pi R_{2}^{2}\sigma $

Charge on the inner sphere: For calculating charge on the inner sphere, let’s assume that the sphere with radius ${{R}_{2}}$ has another shell inside it with radius $r$ and thickness $d$r.The volume of the shell is equal to surface area $\times $ thickness.

Volume of shell: $\int{4\pi {{r}^{2}}dr}$

Charge : $\int{dQ}$=$\int{\rho \times 4\pi {{r}^{2}}dr}$

$\int{dQ}$=$\int{\dfrac{{{\rho }_{0}}}{r}\times 4\pi {{r}^{2}}dr}$........(given that $\rho =\dfrac{{{\rho }_{0}}}{r}$)

$\int{dQ}$=$\int{{{\rho }_{0}}\times 4\pi rdr}$

Integrating from $0$ to $Q$ and from $0$ to ${{R}_{1}}$, we get

$\int\limits_{0}^{Q}{dQ}=\int\limits_{0}^{{{R}_{1}}}{{{\rho }_{0}}\times 4\pi rdr}$

$\Rightarrow Q=2\pi {{\rho }_{0}}R_{1}^{2}$

Therefore the charge on the inner sphere is $2\pi {{\rho }_{0}}R_{1}^{2}$. According to the question, total charge in the system is zero.

Hence, charge on outer sphere+charge on inner sphere=0

$(-4\pi R_{2}^{2}\sigma )+2\pi {{\rho }_{0}}R_{1}^{2}=0$

$\Rightarrow 2\pi {{\rho }_{0}}R_{1}^{2}=4\pi R_{2}^{2}\sigma $

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{R_{2}^{2}}{R_{1}^{2}}=\dfrac{{{\rho }_{0}}}{2\sigma }$

$\therefore \dfrac{{{R}_{2}}}{{{R}_{1}}}=\sqrt{\dfrac{{{\rho }_{0}}}{2\sigma }}$

**Hence, the ratio $\dfrac{{{R}_{2}}}{{{R}_{1}}}$ is $\sqrt{\dfrac{{{\rho }_{0}}}{2\sigma }}$.**

**Note:**Keeping in mind the volume for a shell can save time and solve the problem much faster. When stuck, switch to the basic formulas and start from scratch. Remember there is a difference between a solid sphere and a hollow sphere.
