Expert Answer:

Solutions that contain water as the solvent are called aqueous solutions. For example, sugar in water, carbon dioxide in water, etc.
 
A solution in which the proportion of solute is less than that of the solvent, the solution is said to be dilute. A dilute solution need not always have water as the solvent.
