    In dimensional analysis, it is assumed that the phenomenon can be expressed by a dimensionally homogeneous equation with certain variables.

    Different physical quantities which are used in fluid phenomenon are formed by some fundamental quantities or primary quantities such as mass, length, time and temperature.

    The dimensions given are [M0 L0 T 0]

    It is a dimensionless term. Among the above options, strain in a dimensionless term.

    Therefore strain has dimensions [M0 L0 T 0]

    For other options,

    Density = Mass / Volume

    Stress = Force / Area

    There are not dimensionless terms.
