Expert Answer:

A solute refers to the substance that is to be dissolved; whereas a solvent is the one responsible for dissolving the solute. Thus, in a solution, the amount of solvent is comparatively higher than the solute. For example; in seawater, water (solvent) forms the greater part than the salt component (solute).
