Does the ratio of voltage in a primary coil to secondary coil depends on the turn of each coil?

Yes, although the question is poorly formed. The ratio of the voltage in the primary winding to the voltage in the secondary winding is the same as the ratio of the number of turns in the primary winding to the number of turns in the secondary winding. For example, if the primary had 1200 turns with the secondary having 120 turns, and the primary voltage was 50 volts, then the secondary would be 5 volts. This is a ratio of 10:1.
