How do you know if you have fine hair?

I am trying to tell if my sister has medium texture or fine hair.. Im stuck.
Any tips? She says she thinks its fine but only because she said she doesn't have as much hair as she used to before she started relaxing and straightening it.
I never thought of her hair as fine at I'm lost.
Fine hair strands are very difficult to see to the eye. Hair is very soft, lightweight.
3a/b medium/coarse combo(w/some fine strands), normal porosity, normal elasticity(strong)
Komaza analysis 2015: medium to coarse combo(some fine strands), normal porosity, strong elasticity, healthy hair
Goosefootprints 2013: moderately coarse with some medium; low porosity at roots, normal thru shaft, porous ends, normal elasticity

You would go to the 2 thread, and follow it to the link Kathymack set up for me, which explains the terminology and testing for hair types.
Here's the link to Struttswife's blog on texture:

Thought I should add Marsha's blog with the visuals:
3a (Corkicelli), highlighted, fine, low porosity
