Expert Answer:

1 molar solution has higher concentration than 1 molal solution. A molar solution contains 1 mole of solute in  1000 ml of solution while 1 molal solution contains 1 mole of solute in 1000 ml of water(assuming that the density of water is 1).Therefore, in 1 molar solution 1 mole of solute is present is less solvent than 1 molal solution where solvent is 1000 ml.
