Hello,

I just want to make sure I understand the following sentences correctly.

There's some water in the bottle. (the point is that I can find some amount of water in the bottle)
There's water in the bottle. (what I can find in the bottle is water and not for example wine)
It's water in the bottle. (the thing that is in the bottle is water - as an answer to my previous question: What's that in the bottle?)

Am I right?

Thanks

Correct. But a more natural answer to the question would be a simple, "water".

P.S. Welcome to the forums!

It's water in the bottle.
We don't use this one. Emotion: smile

But you can use: It's water to answer What is it? or What's that? or What's this? or What's that in the bottle? or What's this in the bottle?

Thank you, Philip.

Yet, I'd like to ask you to provide a context for the second one. (There's water in the bottle.)

Thanks.
