Water Contains shows us in what percentage water is present in whole soil sample. soils moisture content can range from 0 to 300 percent. Water contain can't be greater than 100% cause it's impossible to get obtain marks greater than the total marks.

Water content= weight of water/weight of solid

and ,weight of water can be greater than weight of soil solods

Volume of water increase by taking solid content constant then the percentage of water content is more than 100%
