I have a query regarding Specific Volume, which is a property of a substance. I don't get why it is considered as an Intensive Property. It IS dependent on mass (SV = m/density) and hence I think it should be an Extensive Property. Could someone explain pl?

Hi Thermal-Dude, welcome to the board.
How about density? How about internal energy or enthalpy? They also have units with mass in them.
If you break that something down into little chunks (ie: control volumes) and all the chunks still have the same properties, then the property you're looking at is intensive.
