Colonies of yeast fail to multiply in sugar solution.Give one reason for this.

The question needs to be: Colonies of yeast fail to multiply in water but multiply in sugar solution.
This is because sugar i.e. glucose provides yeast with energy to grow and multiply in sugar solution. It fails to multiply in water because water is not a source of energy.
