Correct option is (a) Directivity

To explain: Directivity of antenna is defined as the ratio of radiation intensity in a given direction from antenna to the radiation intensity over all directions. $D = \frac{U_{max}}{U_0}.$

Radiation Intensity is power radiated from an antenna for unit solid angle. $U_0= w_r.r^2\frac{watts}{steradians}.$

Gain of antenna is ratio of radiation intensity in given direction to the radiation intensity of isotropic radiation. Array factor is a function of geometry of array and the excitation phase.
