Answer:

There's more water in the juice than there is juice in the water.

Explanation:

The point to remember is that the juice also contains water - juices are water based.

Therefore when you take one tablespoon of water, you are taking 100% water. On the other hand, when you take one tablespoon of juice, about 90% of what you have taken is also water.

Therefore, there is more water in the juice than there is juice in the water.
