#### Answer:

The solution that contains **12 g** of sucrose in **15 g** of water.

#### Explanation:

You can determine how concentrated a solution is by determining its percent concentration by mass,

Percent concentration by mass is defined as mass of solute, in your case sucrose, or common sugar, divided by the *total mass* of the solution and multiplied by 100.

This means that the two solutions will be

This means that the second solution has **more sucrose** per *100 g* than the first solution. More specifically, you get

*40 g sucrose for every 100 g solution*#-># solution 1;*44.4 g sucrose for every 100 g solution*#-># solution 2.

Therefore, solution 2 is more concentrated.
