ANSWER

Accuracy


SOLUTION
Accuracy is defined as the extent upto which a given measurement agrees with the standard value for that measurement.
For example : Actual weight of the given substance is $$10.0 \ kg$$ and the measured value of the mass is $$9.9 \ kg$$. This measurement is said to be accurate.
