  • Different people have different percentages of their bodies made up of

    water. Babies have the most, being born at about 78%. By one year of age,

    that amound drops to about 65%. In adult men, about 60% of their bodies

    are water. However, fat tissue does not have as much water as lean tissue.

    In adult women, fat makes up more of the body than men, so they have about

    55% of thier bodies made of water. Fat men also have less water (as a

    percentage) than thin men.

    The answer is D
