A simple solution is basically two substances that are evenly mixed together. One of them is called the solute and the other is the solvent. A solute is the substance to be dissolved (sugar). The solvent is the one doing the dissolving (water).

A solvent is a liquid that dissolves a solid, liquid or gaseous solute. A solute is a substance dissolved in another substance.
