i think vldl will be the right answer because the question is asking hypercholestermia.

I could be way off, but I think the correct answer is just TC. VLDL is not commonly measured, and LDL/HDL is not the ratio that we use (it's TC/HDL). HDL and TRG would be more for dyslipidemia or hypertriglyceridemia.

I think TC, too, in general , the LDL would be the best answer since it is used the most to set up Tx goals for hypercholestermia,
