Hit Time and read access time for cache access


Is the hit ratio implicitly accounted for in hit time and read access time? In the subject test for MemoryOrganization in Computer Architecture some questions some questions explicitly account for hit ratio and some don't.How to resolve this confusion?

Access time is the total time to request the data and the request to be met. If in question, access time is mentioned then you don't have to compute the hit ratio because it contains the hit ratio too. But if it is not mentioned, you'll have to compute the hit ratio.
