ASSERTION

Specific gravity of a fluid is a dimensionless quantity.

REASON

It is the ratio of density of fluid to the density of water.

Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion

SOLUTION

Specific gravity of fluid $= \dfrac {\text {density of fluid}}{\text {density of water}}$

Hence Both Assertion and Reason are correct and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion
