Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
A qualitative variable is a variable that can be described, but not measured. It is a "quality", not a quantity, and as such cannot be counted. The senses are described as being qualitative, as something can smell "musty" or taste "sweet", but you cannot apply a numerical scale to those qualities.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
