    Solution:

    The above statement is false.
    Sandy soil cannot retain more water than clayey soil. Clayey soil has very fine particles whereas sandy soil has larger particles. The particles in clayey soil are tightly packed whereas the particles in sandy soil are loosely packed. Clayey soil is rich in humus and heavy in weight whereas sandy soil is not rich in humus and light in weight.
    The corrected statement would be that sandy soil retains less water than clayey soil.
