Solution

## The correct option is C Verbal scales have units whereas ratio scales are unitless.Verbal scales have units as they are defined as a certain length on the map representing a certain length on the ground. For example 1cm=100km. In cases of ratio scales, both distances (i.e. the distances on the map and ground) have the same units. Hence, their ratio is unitless.
