The ratio of the partial pressure of water vapor in an air-water mixture to the saturated vapor pressure of water at a given temperature is termed as:

The ratio of the partial pressure of water vapor in an air-water mixture to the saturated vapor pressure of water at a given temperature is termed as:
[A]Relative Humidity
[B]Absolute humidity
[C]Specific Humidity
[D]None of the above

Relative Humidity
Relative Humidity is the ratio of the partial pressure of water vapor in an air-water mixture to the saturated vapor pressure of water at a given temperature. The relative humidity of air in a closed system will vary with both temperature (which determines the saturated vapor pressure) and total pressure (which implies changes in the vapor partial pressure).
