Answer

Intensive

Work Step by Step

An extensive property is one that changes depending on the amount of the material that you have. For example, mass is EXTENSIVE since when you have more material, you have more mass. Concentration does not change if you have 1L of solution or 2L, it does not change with the amount of material - you always have the same ratio of solvent to solute.
