Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

a. Water 


 The descending portion of the loop of Henle is extremely permeable to water and is less permeable to ions, therefore water is easily reabsorbed here and solutes are not readily reabsorbed. 

reference wikipedia 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
