     A magnetic field is created by the current flowing in each turn/loop.  The magnetic field inside the loop is the resultant of the magnetic fields due to all the turns.  If the turns are very few, then the magnetic field due to each turn is added.  So more the number of turns, more the strength of magnetic field.        So answer will be  2: 1.

   The magnetic field depends on the number of turns of coil per unit length and the current.
